    I need to left my rear end of my 92 X just about an inch. I used the add-a-leafs, and I only got like 1/2 and inch.

    When installing add-a-leafs, should they be as close the the axle as possible? or towards the bumper..?

    And if I decide to shackle it, will I need an alignment? Will the rear shackle raise it too much and off set my front steering?

    Warrior shackles, the only recommendation here. Can I possibly go with another brand of shackles? or are these the "heavy duty" only ones that will withstand punishment? thanks for the help.

    1) the single add a leaf kit is centered in the leaf pack front to back, and goes between the last stock curved leaf and the short straight leaf

    2) don't need an alignment with shackles, they usually give about 1.25-1.75"

    3) warrior shackles are the only "mass produced" lift shackles made specifically for us.
