      I am going to use some f 150 spacers for the front coils to get about 2 inches and I am wondering how much and where i could find some warrior shackles for the back leaf springs.

      Quite a few places have them. If you don't know the part numbers you can go with either WAR 153, or WAR 353. It's been talked about a million times here so searching should have been done first. 4wheelparts, rubicon4x4, desertrat.com all have them. Need to call the places since they aren't listed on the web sites. $40-50 + shipping

      EBI, not to call you a liar but every time I've looked (or called) for pricing, it's more like $65 + shipping. Are you really finding those prices?

      I got my WAR 353s for $59 shipped. $49.00 plus shipping. I got mine through rubicon4x4.com. Everyone else claims they got theirs really cheap from 4wheelparts. Mine have the gold zinc coating.

      If you or someone you know can weld and work with steel, they are very easy to make, I found the dimensions here somewhere then made them a bit longer for a full 2" lift. Not as pretty as the warriors, but just as strong and made from small pieces laying around the shop at work(read free :D )
      If not the warriors are still a good buy.

      I just installed A set of Warrior 153 shackles on my Sport. Not real happy! I got about one inch lift but I lost most of the arch in the mono spring and the ride is much stiffer. I'm worried what the springs are going to do when I put some weight on the back by pulling a trailer! I wonder if I'm damaging the spring by leaving it this way? Any ideas?

      get rid of the mono leaf and swap in a 4door leaf pack, you will be much happier :D

      Yep, 4-door leaf packs should have been your first upgrade before longer shackles. In fact, when you asked about shackles with mono-leafs here about 11 days ago, ExplorerSportNu suggested to you to go with 4-door leaf packs. IMO, you do not want to run longer shackles with just a mono-leaf, you will only be contributing to sagging them even quicker.

      Thanks guys! What year models of 4 door leafs will fit my 2000 Sport? How will the steel leafs affect the ride and how do you know if the springs you get from a salvage yard are any good? Are there that many wrecked 4D X's out there? I just bought this truck and like it a lot, but I just heard about the cam chain tensioner problem. If there are a lot of them in the salvage yards now I know why!

      Your explorer can use any leaf springs from 91-01?

      Can you find the dimensions to those shackles, or let me know where you found them. I would rather build them myself. Thanks.
