    If i bought a shackle flip kit like the one from diy4x.com does that come with shakles to go at each end of every leaf spring, and do i have to have the same shackle at the end of each, so 8 total or what, i guess im not really understanding how it owrks, does it only lift the rear. I guess i need some explaining please, thanks guys,
    are shackle flip worth it or not are they even good.

    You only have shackles at the rear of each spring...

    If you look a little further down, Kert has shackles available too...

    A flip is an awesome way to lift the back. better ride and articulation than a spring lift.. And it only lifts the back....

    ORD has some HD front shackles, but you'll need to run lift springs in the front to match the height of the flip in the back...
