    What did you use for the braces? I like the way it looks. I need to do something similar as I'll be using the front rear hangers.

    those welds look like duck soup. :eek1:

    and if you do the home made flip like that watch out for the shackle angle. lots of times it stays stright up and down. so thay ride like a rock.

    doesn't look like the shackle can swing at all. the welds look like caulk. you could probably knock the braces off with a hammer.

    if you are using a front hanger for your flip it is already braced enough. mounting it to the frame is what you need to focus on.
