Super suspension flex can cause stock spring shackles to invert, that is to move past vertical and fold back against the frame. This locks the spring in its over-arched position and freezes the suspension-a bad deal. To prevent the problem, anti-inversion shackles, such as the one shown here, are available from many YJ-buildup parts suppliers.
