    Received the Ironman kit and went to install the other day and only had two shackles in the kit:frown: I had ordered all 4 and the 4 spring pins. The liquidating company said they would send the pins and shackles out without a problem, very nice to work with BTW. I have two shackles and 1 has a tab on the end of it and the other doesn't. How do I know if it is for the front or rear?? I don't know which shackles I need them to send me. The shackle that doesn't have the tab seems to have slightly more space between the two bolts. Any ideas??

    So I should have two shackles with tabs and they are for the front springs. And two symmetrical w/o tabs go on the rear springs. Correct?

    yes. that's correct.

    install the tab INSIDE so it bumps on the plate to prevent inversion.

    What plate is this? I see a plate on the mount for the front bumper, but that would mean the AI tab would go on the outside. I don't want to have to do the job over again after someon points out that I installed the front shackles improperly. Thnx

    *Edit* Anyone havea pic of a properly installed ironman front shackle?
