    I plan on putting an Echobit flip in the rear of my 1987 K5, and 4" tuff country springs up front. My question is, if I need correction shimms, will I need them for both the front and rear, or just the rear? Thanks.

    The shackle flip will rotate your pinion up in the rear. You can either shim it back down or go to a cv style driveshaft.

    You shouldn't do anything on the front. If you try to shim it, it will change the steering geometry & cause problems.
