H.D. Offroad Engineering Shackle Relocation Kit

Man, I cant believe I didnt do this sooner. My shackle angle is now perfect, got 1.25" of lift in the rear to account for extra weight and the ride is EXCELLENT! No more bumpy feeling in the rear like when my shackle was almost vertical. Now I have to paint them.

WOOT!

Re: H.D. Offroad Engineering Shackle Relocation Kit

I didn't get that much lift, maybe 3/4" or so. It depends on what shackle you're using I suppose. If you have a lift shackle, you could go back to a stock one and negate the extra lift.

The little lift it brings the rear up is certainly worth the difference in performance. The '91 already has them and the '96 will get them soon enough.

Re: H.D. Offroad Engineering Shackle Relocation Kit

i will get getting a set as soon as money allows. I already sit .25" to .50" taller in the rear so I will most likely add a spacer to the front at the same time

I also keep a bunch of gear, a heavy gear box, 60" HiLift, a 20lb C02 setup, (2) 12" subs and an amp in the rear of mine, so I needed the extra boost.
