extended shackles or new hanger mounts?

Postby yourlocalheadhunter » Thu Dec 10, 2015 8:15 pm

ive put 2" kit in my ln106, Has 33" tyres that still rub on the body in front slightly also is body lifted 2".

My shackles in front are factory height and on the right angle. So im thinking i dont really want to extend these and have the angle change?

Other option would be to lower the front leaf spring hanger mounts to gain more lift as well as to get the ute sitting level with the back.

Thoughts any one?

move the front axle forward. Have a search, there is plenty of info on it. Or just use a hammer to clearance the inner guard

I am doing that also 35mm ( just drilling out the spring perch hole to match the side that has the 3 options. But as well as that i want the truck sitting more level.

seems to nose drive like most, and i have just ordered some 35" silverstones
