Rear Shackle Install

The stock five-leaf rear springs were still in decent condition and I liked the spring rate. Plus, most short rear lifts for the Bronco II are add-a-leaf kits. I didn’t want the rear to be stiffer, so I opted to raise it an inch using a 2-inch long shackle kit I picked up from an eBay auction. I did install new poly bushings in the rear of the leaf packs because the old rubber ones were dry and hardened solid.
