    hi was wondering if on a leaf spring if the rear [loose ] brackets have to face rearwards or can they be attached in front of spring eye -- is there a certain angle needed .. thanks bob

    Shackles. They are on the rear for a reason, many actually.
    Angle, important, yes but it is not as important as on a transverse leaf.
