Went to Rennie this weekend and put in work with the Jeep. First trip since long arms, locker, and new tires.... Performed flawlessly!!

She flexes well! Handles great and doesn't unload too bad at all. I'm happy with this setup!!

Tossed my RC shackle relocation boxes in this weekend. Ride is noticeably smoother in the rear, I'm a fan!

Still good flex with the stock shackles? I'm thinking about swapping mine back in. I don't like that the back is higher than the front.

I haven't really flexed it out yet. But I'm sure it will be better than stock mounting position.

I just want my *** end to sit an inch lower. Like metro said, it'll be better then stock mounting position regardless of the shackle length.
