So i have this idea. On my shackle relocation brackets if i make my shackle longer it would allow more flex. It will be the same lift height but the shackle will be 2-3 inches longer. So wouldnt this make for much MUCH better down travel?

Alright so i replaced pass side wheel bearing and u joint. Bought new brake lines from rough country and they are long as balls. I have the most flex possible with 31's and 4.5 inches in the front. Ill post pictures tonight. My rubi express lca bushings are toast. Debating on new ones that are adjustable. Ideas and opinions are welcome. Oh and i got the base of my new bumper done putting stinger on and 3 lights. Thoughts are welcome.

^here you can see my tire has no more up travel. I believe that the way to fix this is alot more back spacing and a ton of trimming.
