I thought that was just one of the side effects of doing a shackle reversal. Stiffer springs or shocks might help the situation. Also, I think that the angle of the shackles can affect this problem too.

'86 CJ7, 258 w/Mopar MPI, 4.56 gears, rear Detroit/front Truetrac, full cage, OBA, 8274, 4" lift via Alcans/Rancho, 35's on beadlocks, other stuff. Built for rocks, mud is a four letter word.
