    so it is said that the stock front hangers for the rear springs will work for shackle hangers on the back. anybody ever thought of using a www.diy4x.com rear shackle flip-n-switch to retain the plate style shackles? :dunno:

    it would drop the back of your spring too much. the hanger comes down at least 4"+ from the bottom of the frame... now a 2.5" flip and switch would prolly work well. This might motivate kert enough to get him to make one... would work for both sfa's and a regular flip.

    now that i think about it, the flip needs 8" to sit against, im not sure if you could get the bracket forward enough to get a good shackle angle.
