    you ever seen an offroad design shackle? I think they need to be moved forward more. Looks the same as the offroad design forward mounting point to me. What I like about this is you could use the second hole with some 56s and little longer shackle and bam awesome shackle angle.

    The truck in the picture is using 8" superlift springs which have a lot of arch making the shackle angle steep. If we move it forward than the guys running stock springs are going to be in the middle and have problems of there own. If you need this much lift I would recommend going to a longer spring.

    do you guys make a 2" lift one too?

    also, the difference between an 8" spring and a 12" spring is a lot. the ride is much stiffer, and you get much less flex. not that 8" springs are soft and flex well, but the shackle helps alot.

    Will these clear anything that a stock hanger will clear? Example - My exhaust (dual exhaust) runs real close to the factory hanger. Will these clear my exhaust just like the factory hangers, or do they take up more room? And please pm me a price shipped to 62271.

    Yes it can work. You can add a 56" springs and a longer shackle in a standard 52" shackle flip and have great shackle angle. I helped az-k5 install his 56" springs. He has a homebrew shackle flip that he ran with 52's. He added a longer shackle and 56's and his truck rides alot better and flexes better.
