    i just got through doing a suspension swap on 2 swb k10's. old k10 had 6" springs in the front, 1" tc drop, 2" add a leafs and 4" locks in the rear. other k10 has those same front springs, 1" tc drop, 2" add a leafs and a 4" shackle flip. my question is how many degrees will the shackle flip itself rotate the axle. need new shims in the rear and don't want to buy more pairs than i need to trouble shoot my driveline vibration. i even swapped axles. did a search and didn't find the exact answer i needed.thanks
