Hey guys,
I recently posted about what size tires I could fit on my 95 Jimny Sierra. I think I'm gonna go with 215 75 15's. ALso I will probably put some 3" (longer than stock) shackels on it eventually. This will net me 1.5" of lift... right? Here in okinawa we have a pretty thorough inspection every two years, so i need to do things that i can easily reverse for the inspection. I figured the shackels would be the way to go, they should be easy enough to swap out when inspection time comes. I think the tires will still fit o.k. without the shackles, what do you guys think? Lastely, if I put the shackles on it, will I need to do anything else, like shocks, or anything for the driveline? I use this rig as a daily driver and NEVER go faster than 60kph(approx 38mph). As for off-road, I am usually in dry/wet sand, coral and your standard mild to moderate trails. Nothing extreme. Thanks-dave

I usually use 2" as the rule of thumb for requiring additional changes to the drivetrain. At 2" you need to adjust the angle of the front axle, add driveshaft spacers and maybe start thinking of a high steer kit. You should be fine with those shackles, but I wouldn't go any taller with just a shackle lift, those can get scary when you go too tall.
