    Ok does anyone know if the dimensions of the flips are the same? basically i need to know if the offests are the same (by offset i mean the mount the flip will move the shackle forward or back) also if it makes a differance it would be a 1 ton diy4x flip compared to a standard ord flip

    The 1-ton flips are spaced in less, because the spring perches on the 1-tons are narrower. Doesn't matter whose brand, they gotta be closer to the frame 'cuz the factory hangers are as well.

    Donno about front-to-back offset.
