    I was looking into lift kits and was wondering what a shackle flip kit would cost from Echobit or if it would be effective to make one? Also, how much lift do they give?

    The echobit flip gives 5.75 inches of lift with stock back springs assuming that they are not sagging from time. It is 100% bolt on and costs 93.64 (I think), and that includes shipping.

    It's less then 90, I got mine to my door for 75 brand new. I love the echobit, extremely easy to bolt on too.

    That's pretty cheap. Have you priced the ORD kit? $$$

    The echobit flip is quality work and well worth the money.

    I didn't say it wasn't Quality. I've been thinking about it for awhile because its bolt on. I'm thinking about the one with 6" shackle for 57's. But it seems to me when I priced them not quite 2 months ago both setups where a few dollars cheaper /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif
