    after looking it over i think im ganna go with a shackle flip..seems really clever and CHEAP way to lift the rear and ive heard lots of good things about it to..only thing im worried about ARE my stock springs..the rears are saggy..might have to pick up another pair cheap... and then ill pick up some used 4" springs somewere for the front..cool now i just need some $$..

    Get the springs re-arched. I dont know how much it cost or where to get it done but it can't be that much because if it was it wouldnt ever be done! On my Burban the springs have been re-arched and it's rear sits about 4 or 5" higher than my grandmother's (both 4x4 89s). Just something to consider

    I heard shackle flips work good, the only down fall is that it makes towing squarlly, anyone know about this? /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif
