I think it was pointed out that the bolt is running the wrong way? Find where its rubbing and picture a linger shackle, does it still? Boomerangs are nice. Adjustability for where it mounts is nicer! Decide if you are going to use the parts you have would be my recommendation. If so, install it with bolt the right way and go from there. If not, a no lift SRB like sfr is the business for dialing in shackle angle... the HD shackles you had shared look fine to me

Ok, the RE2700 are 5" overall length and will lift the rear 1.25" per RE. Sheesh.. talk about the long way around. Thanks for your patience, can't wait to get them on.

Rear Suspension Issues

Took me some thinking to figure what srb is. Shackle relocation.

Yes mine are relocated and my shocks are nearly vertical in that position they can actually dampen forces in the direction they come from. Instead of being layed over at an angle.

My shackle angle is good. With a flat spring imagine going down the rd ture drops in a pothole maybe drops 4" in the hole shackle pulls forward shock resists the sudden drop. Offside spring compresses 2" shackle also come forward.

Where am I going with this maybe it is more shackle angle and decent shocks creating the nice ride. Mu rides definitely not harsh or choppy. I do have a slight fear of breaking the main spring leaf as it will drastically negative arch in the twisty stuff. I have notice I have very minimal wheel hop when on the throttle climbing . Washboard rds ride is amazing

Guess my point is idk what my point is
