Ok so I have been looking at some blocks/shackles/ and revolver shackles for the XJ just to get the back end up some more. I'm not sure what would be best. I really like the revolver ones because more flex and I can swap it to my new leaf whenever I get a real one not adda. Any suggestions would be great! Thnx.

I would look into these

I have bought stuff from the company, and had good luck with them.
These might not give you any lift (depending on what set of holes you use). However will give you more flex.

Revolver shackles don't have the best rep. they can cause a lot of axle wrap and broken u-joints. I would try to stay away from them.

just depends how much more lift you are looking for. The relocation kit with a longer shackles might give you the lift you are looking for and added flex.

Ok was checking it out. That just a new mounting bracket for a shackle? And I just buy a normal shackle and bolt it to whatever hole?

The relocation kit will help give you a lot better shackle angle (over the crappy factory angle) that will help with flex. b/c of how its set up it will give you about 1.5" lift of you leave your shackle angle the same, but to use them for what they are built for that won't be the case. If you run the relocation kit with a longer shackle though, you will get some lift as well.
