    ive only seen teh homemade ones. i woudlnt suggest them for a street truck. for the front do 8 inch spring, 1 inch zero rate, and a longer shackle for 10 inches of lift. u have a 6 inch lift out back right? so just slap on a 4 inch shackle flip and ur set. get some bigger axles though i saw those 10 bolts in teh pictures!!

    Those have been around for a while. I dont see what the big deal is. Not a bad idea if you think about it. They took the same theory as your shackle flip, and extended shackles, jsut added it to the hanger.

    u lose alot of ground clearance from what im seeing. the smaller ones would be ok but id still say shackle flip over them.

    I don't have any idea (never seen them before), but they look like they would be weak given the length.
