I’m piecing my lift together using M.O.R.E 4”shackles and BDS 3.5” YJ springs. What I’m running into is the shackles won’t clear the spring eye. I doubled checked part number (4351) and they are correct. I feel like they might be marked wrong? Any help is appreciated image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg

My shackles have offset center bars but I think once there is a load on the springs the mil wrap leaf moves down giving more clearance. 596F61E3-5709-44DD-91B5-9FAA16EDA7C8.jpeg

I used BDS boomerang shackles on my green Scrambler that has the BDS YJ conversion. I don't think a standard height shackle, or a centered center bar, will work?

Thought: Your wraps looks bent/oblonged and taking up too much space. Randyzzz looks round and tight.

OEM YJ shackles don't have that center piece. So, in a factory-swapped application, these springs would be just fine.

You can probably drop the center bolt/spacer from your aftermarket shackle and still be safe.
