    i got my ORD flip mounted up. there seems to be something weird. it looks like my shackles are angled out at the bottom. like the flip brackets don't stick out quite far enough. anyone else notice this?

    Is the shacle flip installed on the correct side? I was trying to find my pic of one.

    IIRC, they are directional

    they are on opposite sides for more angle, but the guys at ORD said it was fine. that wouldn't matter if they are overall too narrow though. if i look at it from the back, the bottoms are wider than the top. this is on both sides so it's not just the axle sitting crooked or anything

    Measure the frame rails top and bottom to be sure they are square, one or both may be twisted slightly.
