CJ5/7/8 1976-1986 Jeep Shackle Reversal Kit (for wider springs)
The new front pivot brackets are fully welded, and ready to bolt into existing holes in your CJ frame. Spacer plates are provided for the purpose of different winch mounting possibilities, and/or if you choose to use our Frame Plates (FP100 or FP300). The shackle plates provided in this system are 3/8 inch thick steel. The mounting method for the shackle is unique with this M.O.R.E. system. You drill a hole in your frame then weld in a steel tube (see picture below). Polyurethane bushings insert into the tubes which support the shackle plates. The shackles hang from each side of the frame rail. This method of attachment keeps the drive shaft and caster angles as close to stock as possible and gives ample clearance for off road obstacles.
This system will work with stock leaf springs and aftermarket 'lift' springs, however, it will not provide any lift in itself. It will work with springs under the axle (stock set up) of if you have a spring over axle set up. Complete instructions with step by step instructions included. The stock pitman arm must be retained. The front driveshaft will need to be modified with a long travel slip in stub.
This system has all of the features as the 7686-1, however it comes with wider tubes and bushings to insert in the frame so you can install the wider Jeep YJ Wrangler springs. Why, you ask? The Wrangler springs typically have a softer spring rate than CJ's adding to flexibility and ride quality. This system comes with the pivot brackets fully welded. Complete with instructions. The front driveshaft will need to be modified with a long travel slip in stub. (Wider U-Bolt plates not provided).
Includes all hardware shown in photo and shackle plates.
