    I am looking for a little lift for my HJ60.
    How many inches can I add by using larger Shackles ?
    Must I make other adjustments using them ?

    Thanks Dohan

    I believe 60-62 series lifts are all the same, regardless of diesel or not...

    shackles only equal 50% of their length over stock...a 2" overstock shackle = 1" at the axle. Anything over 2" over stock can be unsafe.

    See the threads on the other 60/62-series lifts for ideas on more money to spend...lol

    Hi, thanks for the info.

    I wonder what you mean with unsafe ?
    If I use longer ones wil the roadhandeling become unsafe ore wil it damage my LC ?

    I'm lookling for a cheap solution because i'm taking the car for one run threu the Sahara and selling it in west afrika.
