Ok, so i ordered some 2" lift shackles for the YJ. My stock shackle is 4" bolt hole to bolt hole. The ones that came are 7" bolt hole to bolt hole. Which is a 3" difference. Which tells me i got a 1 1/2" lift shackle, right? im not just having a brain fart am i?

well, apparently they are claiming that this is their 2 inch lift shackle. In reality its only 1 1/2 but it looks like im stuck with them. Thats what i get for trying to work on a budget and order them off ebay. Well, the 1 1/2 will clear the 31s at least right?

You should do fine with them. Are you planning on adding a body lift or just running these until the SOA?

ok, now hes telling me he thinks my shackles are larger than stock. Im pretty sure they arent after googling "stock yj shackle length" Mine are 4" bolt hole to bolt hole, 6" overall lenght. Anyone got some they could measure for me, or perhaps know offhand the dimensions for a stock yj shackle. Thanks!
