    hey! doing the 63" swap in my 85 lwb i just got. instead of going with a used 63" spring set, and shackle flip i bought a 5" lift set from tuff country. i plan on moving front spring hangers forward about 17 inches. rear will move 4"-6". that will let me reduce my wheelbase to about 117". question is can i just use the stock rear hanger-shackle setup ? thanks:D

    Yes but the shackle will be a bit short for a leaf that long with that much arch...but it would be weather or not you do the shackle flip.
