    I'll be doing a shackle flip shortly. I'm going with Borrego's kit.

    Is it worth it to swap F150 springs now? Is it as simple as installing the shackle bracket with the hole backwards? What will the pros/cons be?

    Any input is welcome.
    Thanks.

    I think you need to move the shackle braket back (I think) about 1.5 inches too. I would pm trustyk5 he did it not to long ago there are pics some where in ck5 don't remember where though....
