    Hey I want to put the 4 inch shackle flip on my 1986 chevy Blazer that has the factory stainless steel dual diesel tailpipe set up comming out right behind the rear tires. Is there going to be room for these pipes to stay there or do I have to wack them off. I would like to keep them there if I can in there stock location. Thanks, Klink /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I put a 4 in flip on a m1009 & the exhaust was in the way.
    The tailpipes did have to be moved.

    I did it on mine, just a little sawing, put in an extension. All done, real easy.

    The end of the spring will move down 8". The cleanest exhaust routing with the flip seems to be either extending or shortening the pipe to get it to clear the shackle. We have run into some that looked like they would have to be modified but still fit. There are lots of variations.
