Developed and rigorously tested by in-house engineers, our shackles are engineered to lift the rear end of your truck by 1 or 2 Inches without sacrificing ride quality. Each piece is precision Laser Cut from High Strength Steel for outstanding performance & quality, fitted with our High-Density Polyurethane Bushings for extra endurance and finished with a state of the art powder coating process to protect them against the elements, ensuring a lifetime of dependability under even the most extreme riding conditions. Installation for the whole kit can be completed in 1-2 hours using hand tools. Kit comes with all hardware and installation instructions included.
I am not going to give this a rating rather than make a comment that the instructions are not intuitively obvious about where to put these shackle mounts at....does it go on the front end of the spring closes to front of the jeep or on the rear end of the spring by the back bumper. Also doesn't discuss the tools that would be needed (regardless that I have plenty of tools) but for the do-it-yourself person who may know or wants to know how to work on their own jeep, the instructions lack the details that would make it easy for the "budget builder" to do it right in the convenience of their own home. Luckily for my son working on his jeep I use to work in the off-road industry and have built over 50 jeeps with bolt-on suspension and armor kits.
The front 2" kit was very simple to install and directions were good on it...just need to make sure people know to use a "strut compression tool" and not a "Spring compression tool" as they are two completely different tools to compress the coils on the front of the cherokee. The strut compression tool comes with TWO compressions clamps to put on separate sides of the coils versus a spring compression tool that has two hooks and a bolt intended to go up through the coil with a "paddle" that straddles the bolt at the bottom to compress as you tighten. The spring compressor will NOT work with a Cherokee coil and need the strut compressor tool kit.
