Currie Shackles

Now that we’d addressed the tire rubbing out back, we wanted to gain back some of the compression travel we’d eliminated. The easiest way to accomplish that was to add a pair of Currie XJ shackles. Made by JKS Manufacturing, the Currie shackles are 5 inches long in contrast to the 3-inch stock shackle. Since the leaf springs’ locating pin sits toward the front of the spring instead of in the middle, the extra shackle length adds about 3/4 inches of ride height.
