Will the warrior 153 shackles work on a 95 Eddie?

Yes. Might have to trim a little off the fender behind the tire.

For both of you guys....
The condition of your leaf springs will make a difference in the height gained. Weak / worn springs will lose lift faster than fresh maximum arched springs. If your leafs are old and worn, this is just a temp bandaid and eventually your going to need to replace the leaf packs. These shackles work best on a fresh set of springs for max lift to clear larger tires.

do the wheels need to come off before this? or can they be kept on? taking them off wont be such a pain considering most people do the TT with the shackle placement so they need an alignment anyway. just a quick question

94 & 95 XLT's
2 bars of 3/8" x 10.25" L x 2" W
1/2" bolt holes are 9.5" apart from center to center.

Middle support bar is 1/4" thick sq tube x 3"L x 2" x 1.5" welded between the bars. The center tube is not centered in the middle of the brackets. It is 1" closer to one end then the other for the offset.


Leave the wheels on for install. ;)

LOL, I've posted this picture a couple times in different threads. I figured this would help out in this one too.

30 mins???

Obviously you don;t have to deal with road salt and winter: )

I think it took me three days to get everything dismantled, using WD-40 PB blaster, heater, an impact gun and 3 foot breaker bar. In the end I had to replace the bushings in the frame side of the mount because the metal sleeve had become one with the shackle bolt and separated from the bushing when I removed the bolt.
no kidding.. must be nice.... ; my 97 limited has been used continually to towing and backing down into water at boat launch ramps... This wasn't the first time Ive done something like this (did add a leaf 2 months ago) and this took me around 4 -5 hours a side with all the essentials. .. my shackles are destroyed and flattened ... will post some pics.. had to cutt one bolt cuz was seized just too much. .. crazy but so glad its done.. oh man

Now for the big question, shocks. What length are the stock ones and how am I going to find out what size I need for the rear since I will be raising the truck 2"? I'm not familiar with shocks at all, and so have no idea what I'm looking for.

I kept mine at the stock location and haven't had any issues in over 4 years. You don't really need to relocate the shocks to the swaybar bracket unless you do a SOA (Spring Over Axle) conversion. JMO.
