    I have heard alot of guys saying its not worth doing - so i did it- hehe- i took the stock hangers off the rear side of the frame and went right under the frame and dropped it 2" down from stock on the front hanger and ran 6" shackles on center- and stock springs and i love it- rides better - a little lean on hard corners but we will try it out in the rocks next weekend - Jess

    the desert guys do this too. supposed to give a nice soft ride in the rough. do your shackles pivot under the frame or did you make an eye hole in the frame like the fronts? got pics?
