Calling all shackle flippers
I have always liked the idea of flipping the shackles as a easy, cheap to gain a few inches of lift. I have never done it, but considered it many times.
BUT, after doing a lot of research about linking the rear axle for my "Molasses Project", I'm not so sure. I always wondered why the leafs are angled up at the back on the stock setup. It would appear that they did it for "roll steer" (or lack of it)
So what I'm asking is anyone who did the flip, did you notice oversteer on the highway after the flip? This would be like turning a little and having a little body roll and then feeling more turn. The actual numbers of the "roll axis" I have not figured out yet. But they must change a little. Maybe not enough to notice.
Curious to hear first hand.
