    with or without a shackle flip?
    If without, it will have no lift.

    The 56's create no hieght difference over the 52's. They are just longer and can flex better. Most of the flex created it due to the new shackle angle though.

    i got the 4inch ord shackled flip.so some 56's off a 1/2ton long bed stock and my shackle flip should give me about about 5-6 inchs of lift if i were to keep bout the same shackle angle? because the rear end of a long bed sits higher then the front. are 4wd and 2wd rear springs the same?? how much would the rear end move back like? an inch or two?
