I started installing my new 2.5 inch ome suspension kit today and ran into a small dilema. I got a little excited putting my shackles together and didn't pay attention that the front were different from the back, one is longer than the other and I don't know which one is the which.:censor: Should have looked at the marked boxes a little closer huh! Can some one please tell me if the short shackle goes in the front or the back? I don't know if it makes any difference but the front are the heavy springs.

To clarify I am speaking of the anti inversion shackles. Here's a couple of pics, not really helpful to my question but I thought it was a good time to show off my freshly painted frame and rear end!

Short shackle goes with the short spring-so front.

Your chassis looks great.

sorry cant help with the shackles , but what did you paint the frame with?
I've traded plumbing work to a friend who owns a custom restoration body shop so I didn't paint it myself. I did media blast it to bare metal but he painted. I know he sealed it and I believe it was a dupont black with clear already in it but I will confirm that.
