7686-2 Shackle Reversal System for CJs with YJ Springs (2-1/2") 1976-1986 Jeep® CJ-5, CJ-7, CJ-8 vehicles**. 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).
Complete Installation Instructions
The following information applies to all Jeep Shackle Reversal Systems (S.R.S.) that M.O.R.E. manufactures: Why install a shackle reversal system? Because it allows the front suspension to travel in a much more natural action when the spring compresses. In stock form when the front tire comes in contact with an obstruction (shackles in front of the front axle housing), the impact is partially transmitted back to the frame via the solid rear pivot point. Reversing the pivot point to a point in front of the axle, it allows the impact to be better absorbed by the spring and shackle. The result is a more natural suspension flow over the obstacle, thanks to your Jeep shackle reversal system. At higher speeds, a smoother ride and improved handling are noticeable, while less wandering and darting are some of the advantages.
All M.O.R.E. Jeep shackle reversal systems have a very important design feature built into the new front pivot brackets. They are designed to move the front axle forward from the stock location. When the shackle is reversed to behind the front axle, it will swing rearward and the tire will move slightly aft as the suspension compresses. Pushing the wheelbase forward will help keep the tire from contacting the fender during suspension compression. This is the only correct way to design a shackle reversal system. With this in mind, the front drive shaft will have to have a longer travel slip-yoke installed (in most cases) by a professional drive line shop.
The bracketry on your shackle reversal system is manufactured from .250" thick steel, cut with CNC laser, for .004 of accuracy. All pieces of the Jeep shackle reversal system are precision bent to exact tolerances and assembled in our jigs, and then M.I.G. welded. All hardware is grade 5. Complete instructions with several pictures are included. Downloadable instructions are also available.
For the do-it-yourselfers, we offer our Jeep shackle reversal systems in bare steel. None of the parts have been powder coated or zinc plated. This saves you money and allows you to customize your rig with any color you desire.
For the budget minded, we also offer our shackle reversal system in "kit" form. All of the pieces to build your own S.R.S. are included. If you are a welder/fabricator and can handle the assembly of the pivot brackets, weld the pieces found in your shackle reversal system together by using your Jeep® frame as a jig. We've done all the laser cutting of holes and slots, bending and most importantly, geometry for correct axle placement. All hardware for your Jeep shackle reversal system is included (no powder coating or plating) along with detailed instructions for assembly.

New Stubby Frt. Brackets now Available ! These brackets gain you 1 7/8” more clearance. Don't let that bracket hanging down hang you up on that rock. These Stubby brackets are shorter in height which gives you more clearance for those obstacle's.
Most of our products a purchased by our customers are powder coated but we offer a way to save a few bucks and give you a choice to purchase this item in bare steel. When you order these in bare steel all the items are bare steel (no zinc plating, no powder coating). We believe since these are in a brutal environment (your under carriage) that with our tough powder coating and zinc plating of the shackles the life and function of SRS will be extended and is worth the few extra dollars to have them coated professionally.
For the budget minded, we also offer Jeep YJ and Jeep CJ shackle reversal in "kit" form. All of the pieces to build your own Jeep S.R.S. are in this kit. If you are a welder/fabricator and can handle the assembly of the pivot brackets, weld them together by using your Jeep® frame as a jig. We've done all of the cutting, punching of holes and slots, bending and most importantly, geometry for correct axle placement. All hardware is included in our Jeep S.R.S. kit (no paint or plating) along with detailed instructions for assembly. Learn more about our Jeep CJ shackle reversal kit and other available products.
