Hi mate

Is it easy to flip the shackles? Mine are facing the wrong way. Wanting to get them back correct way so it drops the rear slightly

Any info or step by step way to flip would be appreciated

Hey man, can’t remember an exact process unless I wrote it in a post.. I used a short crowbar between the shackle mounts of the body and leaf spring and levered them back, just can’t remember if I needed to drop the nuts off the bottom of the shock to give more range of movement. It wasn’t a tricky process at all though, just gotta jack it high enough to give the crowbar room to rotate as you need good leverage. My crowbar is only 600-700mm long.

Hope that helps
