I don't know if there is a difference, I have seen gassers done both ways, but I see nearly all have the shackle up front. The one I'm planning will be shackle up front.

Both the Speedway Motors straight axle kit and the Motion Performance kit both have the shackle up front. So does the Bill Thomas re-creation of their 60's "instant funny car kit" offering, the shackle is up front.
