    I took off a 2" block and spring packs w/ add-a-leafs. Hopefully I'll get about 1" more lift and the truck will have a very slight rake to it:

    question?

    Stupid question, the shackles on the rear of of your leaf springs, do they point up? Is that the way its supposed to be? I am putting 4"springs on my frame now as well. I didnt take any of the factory stuff off, so I am trying to figure out (puzzle) how all the parts go back to gether.

    His rear shackle is stock. Yes it does point up. Yes that is the way it is supposed to be. When you do a shackle flip, the shackle points down thereby raising the car. Good luck piecing it all back together!

    They'll go more vertical when I finish putting the bed on, here's the test fit:
