    Looking for a rear shakle flip kit for a 1-ton pickup. The spring/ frame width is different than the 1/2 and 3/4 ton-ers. So far it looks like ORD is the only people making a kit for the 1 tons. Anyone know of others yet? Thanks.

    since the 1ton frame is straight in the rear (IIRC), you should be able to use a set of rear spring front hangers off another 1 ton truck to create a flip in the rear.
