this is a myth

the reason why leafs go bad with longer shackles is because it causes them to be able to move past what they were designed to with the short stock shackles... longer shackles usually allow the pack to be able to negative arch because when pressure is put up (ie when you flex) the longer shackles allows the pack to go flatter due well to its length... this isnt possible with the shorter shackle cuz its shortness prevents the pack from fully fanning out

obviously tho, you dont flex unless your offroad and well, thats why packs go bad, street only driven trucks with shackles do just fine

every time you negative arch a spring, it starts killing its over all spring rate
