    Just replaced my sagging/bottoming out old stock springs with new (1,500 miles) ones and added my 3 leaf aal to them. Whats the stock shackle torque specs on these? Also, noticed the shackle angle changes as the trucks raised/lowered. Do I torque these down while the trucks at ride height or doesn't matter as they move around as needed? I just tightened them to 75lbs like the shocks and u-bolts!

    Put my wheelers 3 leaf aal into the new spring pack with overload and got about 3" lift out of it! Rides like it did from the factoy, lol! Waiting for everything to settle before I do final measurements!

    Don't forget to follow up a few miles down the road and retorque or at least make sure they're not backing out. Do a cross pattern when tightening, similar to that of lugs.

    So they're meant to move around based on flex right? So I should tighten them down at ride height?
