    6\" REAR SPRINGS W/SHACKLE FLIP?

    I'm running 6in rear springs but I want to run a set of something like the revolver shackel. What are my options? Does ORD make anything that would work like a shackel flip with no height added. I've got a 2in body lift also. /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    they make a 2.5" shackle flip, a no lift setup would put the shackle mount up in the area of the frame. meaning you would have to drill a hole through your frame to put the nut on the bolt. Meaning anytime you wanted to unbolt it you'd have to drop the tank.

    About as good as you can get is the 2.5" lift, I'm not sure what to tell you from there. A no lift compression shackle setup would have to look something like this:
    Rear shackle
    The height of the mounting point may even have to be higher than shown in the pic. The flip kit in the pic is a 2.5" lift version.
