View Full Version : Rear shackle

05/05/10, 10:39 PM
Installing new rear springs and noticed on one side the open side of the shackle faces forward and on the other side it faces rearward. What is the correct way to install? I have a few repair manuals but they don't show a close enough picture. Thanks for the help.

Sounds like someone has had that apart before. I would put the open part to the rear and run them. The two Broncos in the shop are to the rear.

X2 with the open part to the rear. That allows the greatest droop and therefore maximum articulation.
