Pics above show the shackles in the "original" position as they wouldve been when the car left the factory.

I thought maybe Dakota boy was refering to a picture he posted. Here is a picture of the shackle hanging down. And one of it flip into the new position.

Everyone realizes that by flipping the shackles, undo strain is put on the springs, especially worn springs?

Maybe a better alternative- http://thesuspensionking.com/catalog...faaed733c8d446

I've got the right one flipped right now as an experiment; not a long-term solution.

I have a bit of sag at the right rear corner.

I'm going to get a suspension shop in MKE to look at it, now that the snow has finally subsided

And for all the amount of increase in distance you get with 'flipping' the shackles it hardly seems worth the effort.
