      I noticed the same thing, I'm on my second set and when the product arrived it was correct.

      BTW I'm glad my post has helped.

      Four0Sport and everyone else this thread was perfect pretty much answered any questions i already had. I had a 94 sport but had to let her go i miss that tank. Now i have a '96 XLT and i wanted to do a mild lift and put some nice size rubbers on i think the tt and shackles will cover that without an issue.

      Did the instal a few days ago. What a difference. Have a set of Monroe reflex on the back the only thing is now there is alot of creeking if I push on the bumper. Any thoughts if that gonna be a problem or just something normal.

      Thanks

      Mine does this, the mattress creaking I get comes from the front spring bushings just in front of the rear tires. I've found this to work the best to stop it as it goes on like wd-40, then turns to grease:

      Great thread. I used all the tips. My stock shackles were burnt toast. Crumbling away with the passenger side already letting loose and collapsing up to the frame.I installed the cheaper Autozone shackles because they came with new bushings and I didn't have the cash for the Warriors right now. Breaker bar and spraying down with Kroil a day before really helped.

      I realize this is probably a dumb question, but my warrior shackles arrived today and the middle brace between the arms isn't center, it's offset, and I assume for a reason. So question is do you install the longer arms up or down?
      Thanks,

      Long Arms up.... It keeps the cross brace from hitting the frame when the suspension compresses and the spring goes flattish (e.g. longer).
