I had some free time this morning to get some werk done. I installed my new shackle box relocation brackets. Install was not hard at all. I had about an hour into it.

First I removed the upper shackle bolts. and lowered the rear suspension.
Then tried to install the upper bracket. I had to open the OE mount slightly for ease of install. The new box was a tight fit. I bolted everything up loose and set it on the ground.

My first attempt at was a failure. The shackle bottomed out right away.
After some slight adjustment I think I got it at a good angle. Opinions on the angle would be appreciated.

I forgot to measure before I swapped these in but I can notice a slight amount of lift gained. The bottom of my taillight now measures 34" from the ground. I have 4.5" springs and stock shackles. I am still undecided on ride quality. I went down a sloppy dirt road today after the install and it felt really loose. Wet pavement was not any diff though.

The main reason for installing these was for strength.
