    I have a 14 B FF and will be putting a D60 in my '87 K5. I will be running a 6" springs in the front and the Echobit ford shackle and ford 57" springs. I will be putting on eather 37x12.5 MT/Rs or 38x15.5 TSL radials on my truck. I was wounding if anyone could tell me how to figure out how far to move my front axle forward and my rear axle back and what degree shim I would need. Is there a sit I can goto to caculate this in?
    Thanks for your help.

    You need to measure it yourself. Even if someone had a truck just like yours, it could still be a little different.
    I did a flip in the rear and moved the rear axle back 1.5" and it is perfect.
    Not sure about the front.
