I was sick of the terrible ride and flex I was getting out of my re4.5 leafs and stock shackle setup, Found these in the states:
http://www.hdoffroadengineering.com/collections/frontpage/products/xj-shackle-relocation-kit , took almost a month to get (never ship usps-theysuck) They are very simple to install ,you unbolt the rear shackle,set this thing in there, and it mounts with the existing bolt and to two of the trailer hitch mounting holes, and a few rosette welds. I installed a new hitch at the same time,it sandwiches the relocation bracket in between. I tried with the stock shackles and ride was way better, but put on some 1.5 inch to 2 .5 inch lift shackles to get a little more height and improve the shackle angle. These things have alot of adjustability and allow even a longer leaf. I know a few guys that have stretched there wheelbases with londer springs and these brackets.
