    EchoBit 57\" shackle Flip w/ pics

    I got Mike's 57" shackle flip last friday and this past tuesday I put it on. It took me and 2 buddies about an hour to put it on. (Thats with dip and smoke breaks) All I need is to get the 57" springs and put them on. All I will lose is 1/2" - 3/4" of lift when I put the 57" srpings on.
    The pics I have is with the stock GM 52" springs.

    Nice work in progress. I've never seen the 57" kit with 52" springs mocked up. You'll loose about 2" of height once the 57's get on there from the shackle angle alone. Whats with all the jeeps back there?

    Thanks alot Mike & Jon. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
    My 87 is at my buddies house shop. He mostly does work on jeeps. My 87 K5 is the first full size he is helping make into a rock crowler. I will keep everyone updated on the progress.

    I like how you've lightened up the front end. Very minimalistic. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
