    Has anyone had any experience with the 2 1/2" ORD shackle flip? How much did it change your pinion angle? How much did it move your axle foward?

    Currently my rear setup consist of 8" springs w/o load leaf, 1"Zero Rate, stock shackle setup and it sits a little lower than I like. I'm thinking that by using the 2 1/2" shackle flip and remove the 1" Zero Rate will level it up and give alot better flex. Any thoughts would be great.

    Pinion angle change should be in the neighborhood of 4 degrees. Moving the axle forward, I'd have to have some dimensions to draw it out to get you an idea. You might check to see if the center pin is offset on those springs, you might be able to put the long side to the front to take care of any problems.

    What about a block with offset pin holes? If anyone knows where I can get a 3" block (2.5" wide) with offset pin holes or a solid block that I can drill the holes, please email me @ jcooper@aaamissouri.com. Thanks

    I'll send the email but I think you're asking about our zero rate add-a-leaves....
