Are shackle flips right for me?

    A Question for all of you shackle flipper guys... I plan on getting about 3-4 inches out of the suspension lift by adding a leaf to the front and rear and using the special ORD front shaclles for the front axle. Would a shackle flip in the rear be a good idea? Is there a special kit that I can buy that will make this easy? Thanks for all the help...

    I believe the ORD HD front shackles are the same length as stock on 88-91 K5s, so you won't get any height out of them, but the rear flip will give you 4 inches.
