    I was wondering if anyone had this set up for the rear and then a 4" springs in the front for a lift. Was wondering if this would work instead of a 4" spring rear lift because it just sounds like fun to have the flip kit. Maybe no real benfit for what im doing but just looks good too IMO.

    2.5" flip + 2" lift springs will double your expenditure compared to buying either 4" springs or a 4" flip...

    From what i have heard the diffrence between a 4" shackle flip and 4" leaf springs is that the 4" leaf springs are alot harder and give a harsher ride and they dont flex as much but the shackle flip provides the lift and sustains basicly the same factory ride and flexes alot better. i hope that helps
