Drop Shackles do not work on an RC. Also the rear eye shackle angle needs to remain correct for proper spring rate and travel. Good point of reference here...

Leaf Spring Tech: Shackle Length & Shackle Angle

A big improvement in traction and limiting wheel hop can be obtained by installing poly bushings in front, rear eyes and shackle.
