I plan to cut my big shackle down to 1.5" shackles and hopefully they will work fine with my front 3" coils. If not, oh well. I'll just go to 4.5 and enjoy the up travel and the extra belly height. But, if I go to 4.5, I will get 2" wheel spacers to make up for the added height in width. Anyways, I did an alignment yesterday and the XJ keeps wanting to go right. I know this is a Jeep thing and it has to do with the crown in the road, but I think mine is doing it worse because the *** end is so damn uneven. Hopefully, the springs will fix this.
Well now you know you are going to roll while driving over a speed bump.
