    OK, Its suspension time :)

    So far I have the following set that I know what I want to do

    6" Fabtech BASIC
    Icon Coilovers for the 6" kit
    33" on 17x9s ( 35s in the future wiht a regear)

    My questions come up when I get to the rear suspension

    Here are the options that I am playing with

    1- Just 6" Alcans with a little extra weight added to the drivers side for the taco lean
    2- 6" Alcans - ATO Shackle Flip - XJ 1.5" Shackles

    I would use 14" travel shocks with either setup.

    What I was really looking for was 4" spring with hopes of getting the other 2" from a shackle flip/shacke combo, but it looks like I will only get 4" out of that

    a few questions...

    1. Will I need a driveline shim and spring shims to clock the rear housing?
    2. With the springs/shackle flip/ and shackles, will It sit level on the street or is it going to be ass high? I would like to dial in the springs to being it back down to level when I order them and I can crank the Icons a bit too, bt with 33s I would want it to sit too high.

    If you have any other options or ideas, please let me know

    Anyway,

    thanks for any input in advance. The plan is for a moderate trail setup, but still keep decent street manners since I drive it pretty much daily
