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?

^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.
