Im at a crossroad with the leaf springs. 8 pack of the RE 5.5 pack is pretty much flex proof. I have 7.5 inch coils in the front with that back in the back and it sits perfectly even. I dont really want to go any higher but I guess adding shackles would help a lot but would give me a little more lift. Anyone know any shackles that wont raise it much but would deff help with the rear flex?

do the shackle relocation brackets. they will give your jeep alot more flex in the back. i think its HD engineering that makes them.

Yeah, and I have heard the revolver shackles allows for alot of flex, however i do know they can be pricey. Not sure how much they would lift it though.

I heard cutting out the front hangers and welding in sliders doesnt add more than about 1/4''( I'm sure with propper planing that can be taken care of) and makes leaves flex a tun more.
