    Those are revolver shackles, They have been around for a while. They help give more articulation while off roading, but I do not know if they provide more lift.

    I just looked up how much they are... $495 a set :eek: :eek: :eek:. Since some Jeeps have leaf springs front and rear, does "set" mean for front and rear shackles or is it a set of 2?? Anyways, that is still expensive for shackles.

    Loooonngg ago we talked about using the YJ revolver shackles on an Explorer, but it was always questionable as to if they would hold up to the weight of the Explorer
