4 PLUS SHACKLE REVERSAL KIT E-07/80 FJ40

One of the biggest problems with the stock suspension of a FJ40 is that the shackle is at the front of the spring and the solid hanger is at the rear. As the spring is compressed, it flattens and lengthens pushing the axle up and forward into the obstacle it is trying to get away from. By mounting the shackle at the rear of the spring and the solid hanger at the front, the axle now moves up and to the rear, away from the obstacle in its path . This gives a much smoother and controlled ride, as the front suspension is no longer fighting the terrain, but absorbing it through the shocks and springs. There are other Shackle Reversal Kits on the market, and we wanted to point out the differences that we feel make ours the best unit available. First, our front spring pin hanger is designed to actually increase your approach angle by up to 12 degrees due to its ramp type shape that slopes to the rear, (not front like other kits on the market, which will actually decrease your approach angle. Our kits feature the heaviest construction on the market, as we expect you rock crawlers to use our kit as a ramp to get over boulders. Our kit is designed for the front leaf spring to be flipped, while keeping the short leg of the spring with the solid hanger, and the long leg with the shackle for proper spring deflection. Our upper shackle hanger is made of super thick tubing that is machined and honed for precise bushing fit, preventing slop, which can be seen in other kits. Kit includes 4 new spring/shackle hangers, 2 bump stop spacers, grade 8 mounting hardware, and instructions. Kit will raise the front of your vehicle approximately 1-1/2″.
