Hi y’all, in the middle of installing a lift kit. I have two new sets of anti inversion shackles and they are slightly different sizes. Do the taller ones go in the rear or front?

Also, I have two different parts numbers from Ironman on my rear leaf springs. Ironman told me they are for specific sides. Anyone know which side is which?

Typically the longer ones go in the rear, also notice the plates on the longer shackles are beefier/thicker...also meant for the rear.
At least that is the norm for OMEs. OME mentions this in the package insert IIRC.

Longer answer...I used Rear shackles on the front and rear of my OME setup, just for the beefier shackles and extra 1/2” of length, which is negligible. Sold the front shackles to a friend.
Can’t help you with the springs sides, I don’t know Ironman. I like their protected grease zerks though.
