No Mystery Precision Lift Shackles

Postby Horsehammerr » Tue Nov 03, 2009 3:09 pm

:lol: Put a pair of Daystar Shackles on today. They were 1.5" lift. Exactly 3" longer than stock resulting in precise 1.5" lift. I was amazed, they were a breeze to change over, and they are non-greaseable. I forgot what it felt like to be level instead of always headed up hill. 8)

My situation is the opposite. I installed the Boise spring kit and still haven't adjusted my torsion bars. I'm always headed downhill. :roll:

Do like I did, just crank them all the way to the stops and drive it over to a good front end man for alighnment. Mine had to be lowered 1/2" on the right to get it right, but all in all it sits 1 1/2" higher than it was stock. Actualy very easy to do, took about 10 minets. 8)

No kidding? Thats good news.

I just plan to do my torsion bar crank right before I go to get my new tires. Will they automatically align my wheels upon installation of the new tires? Or do I have to specify that?

You will need to specify you need an alignment. Not all shops have an alignment rack so you should check in advance of going and set up an appointment for the day you are getting the tires on. Tbar crank can be done easier if you lift the front with a jack but yes it's all of a 10 minute job.

I did not jack mine up first. I just cranked my Tbars till they bottomed out and pulled back and forth hitting the brakes a couple of times and it lifted. Then down to the alignment shop . Done. :lol: 8) I would get the cranking and alighnment done before the new tires. Did you do the Skidz cuts on your front fenders? Or the 2" body lift ? :?:

I have a friend that tried doing like that too. He twisted off one side and stripped the other.
