Default shackle relocation ?

I put a 2" budget boost on the truck to help clear my tires and for the rear I used shackles but I don't like my shackle angle now its to straight up and down. I could loss a inch in the back and not mind so I wanna re drill my subframe mounts has anyone done this and how much did you move the hole. I the 3/4 would be perfect just from using a straight edge to eyeball how much it would change. Sorry no pics my cameras not cooperating

So I assume I'm the only one not happy with the shackle angle after a b.b.

You wanna do what to your what?

Check out hd off-road engineering's shackle relocation kits. They have versions that give no lift or 1.5" of lift. Also, keep in mind when you change your shackle angle the ride height will go down.

I have the no lift relocators. Very pleased with them, although I kinda wish I went with the lift version.

It looks like you have room to drill new holes in front of the existing holes. This would give you more angle and if it does not help, you could move it back to the original location. But please don't drill holes in your frame on my advise alone. You need to measure and decide if the extra holes will weaken the mount or cause any interference problems with the shackles. If this works for you could always add a plate on each side to add strength.

Ironman 4x4 Fab is the only MJ specific shackle relocation kit i could find and they're expense for what they are. better off making your own. I was going to transfer my relocation brackets from my xj but like stated earlier, not the same at all
