Mountain Off-Road 8795-20 Standard Shackle Reversal Kit with Weld on Mounts in Bare Steel for 87-95 Jeep® Wrangler YJ

Catalog #: 12590.0204
Mountain Off-Road Part #: 8795-20
Description
The M.O.R.E. Jeep® YJ shackle reversal system is a weld on do it yourself kit with all hardware included. A shackle reversal system or "SRS" allows the front suspension to travel in a much more natural action when the spring compresses. All of the pieces to build your own Jeep® S.R.S. are in this kit. If you are a welder/fabricator and can handle the assembly of the pivot brackets, weld them together by using your Jeep® frame as a jig. All of the cutting, punching of holes and slots, bending and most importantly, geometry for correct axle placement is already done for you. It will work with or without a lift kit, spring under or over the axles. Shackle plates ship in bare steel, not zinc plated. Stubby Kit versions with more front approach clearance also available.
Details

Why install a shackle reversal system? Because it allows the front suspension to travel in a much more natural action when the spring compresses. In stock form when the front tire comes in contact with an obstruction (shackles in front of the front axle housing), the impact is partially transmitted back to the frame via the solid rear pivot point. Reversing the pivot point to a point in front of the axle, it allows the impact to be better absorbed by the spring and shackle. The result is a more natural suspension flow over the obstacle, thanks to your Jeep shackle reversal system. At higher speeds, a smoother ride and improved handling are noticeable, while less wandering and darting are some of the advantages.

All M.O.R.E. Jeep® shackle reversal systems have a very important design feature built into the new front pivot brackets. They are designed to move the front axle forward from the stock location. When the shackle is reversed to behind the front axle, it will swing rearward and the tire will move slightly aft as the suspension compresses. Pushing the wheelbase forward will help keep the tire from contacting the fender during suspension compression. This is the only correct way to design a shackle reversal system. With this in mind, the front drive shaft will have to have a longer travel slip-yoke installed (in most cases) by a professional drive line shop.

The bracketry on the shackle reversal system is manufactured from .250" thick steel, cut with CNC laser, for .004 of accuracy. All pieces of the Jeep® shackle reversal system are precision bent to exact tolerances. All hardware is grade 5. Complete instructions with several pictures are included.
