I have a 4 inch lift kit made by Rancho and it is not smooth. I pulled the second to shortest leaf out of the spring pack to soften the ride up and it did the trick however the passenger side shackle now wants to flip itself inward when it hits a bump or does any flexing. I do not want to run a longer shackle as I like the height of it now.
Does anyone have any suggestions for such an issue ?
The spring pack on the passenger side appears to be flaring out at the back of the pack closest to the shackle but the drivers side is not doing this nor does the shackle get inverted on the drivers side ?

Not what you want to hear, but the proper fix is to move the shackle hanger on the frame forward. This will allow the shackle to be at the appropriate angle. I moved mine in 1” but 1.5” or more would have been better. Most aftermarket lift springs are shorter than ideal when newer.
