    How much would it cost to have a factory type rear schakle hanger made? It would need to be longer than factory (sit lower) hanger by 1-2" in order to use a longer (drop) schakle for more flex but no lift.

    Could you also make the same size as factory but offset to the rear like your flip kit to use 56" spring in a stock K5?

    I would like to keep my K5 stock height but gain flex and a softer ride.

    Thanks.

    A longer shackle does not equal more flex... It can but it coes down to angle...

    If your really looking for something like this get ahold of kert at diy4x hes great with custom 1 off stuff.

    If you really want a better ride/ more lfex run a 2.5" shackle flip and some tc springs. it will give ya a little bit of lift but will ride better and look great...
