    I was wondering if anyone has ever used your front hd shackles on the rear with the shackle flip or if you or someone else has used some other shackles with your kit. Just looking at other possibilites and maybe beefing it up some. Thanks and happy holidays!

    We've custom built some rear shackles in the past, but are back to just using the factory shackles now.

    the extended shackles that the lowrider crowd uses will add lift with the flip kit and allow for more spring movement

    this guy has something like that in the rear of his SFA newer truck. not sure if they were custom made or off the shelf.
    seems he took the pic of the rear down for some reason.
    maybe email or message him, if that fails I saved the pic to my HDD
