Default shackles

I ordered deavers yesterday and I'm wondering do I need to run a shackle in the rear, and if so why and what kind

I've seen a few threads about this and most people either run JKS shackles or you could run slider boxes like will does, he may chime in, I would probabley go with sliderboxes that they tend to add very little if any height.

Shackle relocation boxes. You can adjust the angle how you want it.

deaver just recommends a boomerang shackle.

i run LII sliderboxes with my deavers, either way should work fine.

LII offers both sliderboxes and shackle relocators.

The sliders have never done me any wrong, I have very early versions (the first ever) for XJs, and as a result theyre the first design...I bent them a few times due to lack of gusseting on the backside (when i would come down on them in the rocks). I think Tim has since addressed this..

I have plans to return to a shackle relocator however because I need more uptravel in the back...at no fault of the sliders.

I would run either confidently.

do you have just stock length shackles? You want a little more length to get the most out of them, especially with a relocator. If you move the stock shackle farther forward your basically just putting it at the end of its travel.

I run LII relocation brackets with a 1" lift boomerang. I like the set up a lot; my angles are all correct and it does well for what I use it for without additional lift (besides the inch the boomerang ads)
