    Ok,
    I ran down into the garage in my bare feet and L=~2 3/4"...front and rear. ~ is just a smidge more than 2 3/4". Now I got to get my feet to warm up.

    My front Shackle length is 2.5"
    I have Old Man Emu Leafs with original Shackles.
    The Shackles are slightly too short.

    When you jack up the Chassis and the Axle drops, The Shackle should be at a 'Right Angle'(90 degrees) with the Chassis.
