good for crawling but not for speed or cornering. I beleive they are bolt on. (see droop articulation thread)

They are a bolt on shackle, mainly used for rock crawling and articulation. For travel and cornering, they are useless. I have a friend that has them on his 87 K5, he loves for Rubicon. BTW....he has the custom sheetmetal to prove it! =)

As has been recently discovered they are no good for rock crawling ether.

No personal exp. on it, but what I've read is that when trying to do steep climbs, they tend to open up and let the axle try to drive foward under the truck with out the truck going foward causeing the spring to unload that start hopping this will prevent you from contiuing and probably do drive line damage. I see them on trucks that just want high RTI scores, but nobody that does extream rock crawling uses them.

I could see that being a problem on the front, but wouldnt the rear load or compress the shackle? I could be wrong. I have seen them on a few rigs on the trail and the guys were raving about them but I have always wondered?
