if i am assuming correctly this is you question.

NOTE> look at key to understand diagrams.

KEY

"\_/" is leaf spring

"["and "]" are shackls.


do i need set up A or set up B?

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

setup A
[ ]
\_/


------------------------------------------------------------------------------

setup B
]
\_/

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

let me know if u understand my diagram and tell me if it helps.
(if u cant i wont blame you, not many people understand my crazy $h!t)


as for wich one you use, if i am correct (90% shure) it is infact illigal to run setup A with a shackle on each end of a leaf spring. on that note i would choose setup B.

hope that helped.

shackle on both ends wouldn't work its not a suspension design , it nothing . constant rate springs require a shackle on one end a solid on the other .

Yea, you only need the shackles in the rear.

if you are just looking for more height you don't need revolver shackles like Tera flex makes

RE makes boomerang shackles

and rough country as well as many other suspension companies make just the basic shackle which is longer than stock
