    I have an 82 Silverado 4x4 Pickup with a 4in Rough Country Suspension lift and the back is saggy, au usual. Would the shackle flip be a cost effective and viable option for curing this? I occasionally wheel but its mostly mud and trail rides and flex has never been an issue. Should I go with an add-a-leaf?

    Do you have rear springs or blocks? a 4" flip just replaces a 4" block so you won't really gain much but you could add the 1" zero rates. If you have the springs, you could just to the Zero rate add-a-leaf to pick it up a little.

    I have the block in the back. Would the zero rate helo with that?
