If I did 2.5" ome and 1/2" shackle lift would these shocks still work on my yj?

Yup, they would work great with that setup.

Thread bump

I don't know of any shocks under 100$ that will let you flex like this :-)

Booms stand for boomerang. It's a type of shackle shaped like a boomerang to help smoothen out the ride.

I would think they don't smooth out the ride than any other shackle or the stock ones even. The shape (I thought) was designed to stop spring inversion during suspension flex

Stop inversion and also clear the rear crossmember. They move in exactly the same arc as a straight shackle, just sometimes with more
Or less clearance

I have standard grade 8's in mine. anyway I got snagged on a rock and did this to the rear driver shock. its completly frozen stiff now, no up or down movement
only like a month old but covered in mud is all. I dont think they are going to take this back like you suggested

Mine was just as bad as that and they took it back.



The rest of the damage from that day.
