    Yeah thanx C how smart I am. So here is a question. I was told that the front Shackles would lift my front end a little because they are longer. How can I keep it level with this new lift I got? Do they come in a stock size? Please advise me oH wise Internet people. Thanx a lot guys.

    You really need to call them, they are pretty busy and sometimes they never will answer their emails. However, I will tell you that they are more than happy to answer all your questions and they make sure you get what you want. I have ordered many things from them, braces, shackles, crossover, bushings...and I have never once had a problem with them. I have on order right now a body lift and they even tracked down some 5/8"s greaseable bolts for me, I almost made the bolts myself but they said just get the poly bushings and theyll get the bolts. Which is nice because they dont make greaseables for the setup I am running. I will not hesistate to buy something else from them.

    Ord

    Glad to hear positive feedback about ORD.I know they sponsor this forum so I would like to patronize them.---For me price is not the most important thing.In Hawaii,everything is expensive.Service on the other hand is a must.If a company gives me chitty service,they will never see my money again,if they take care of me like they should,they'll have a customer for life.---Will definitely give ORD a try.

    You are talking about the FRONT AXLE SHACKLES....everyone thinks you are talking about the REAR AXLE SHACKLES. Make sure you let people know 'cause that ain't the correct link...it seems you are talking about these....

    http://www.offroaddesign.com/catalog/hdshackles.htm

    They are 1/2" longer, so pretty much, it'll lift the front of your truck a whopping 1/4"...not enough to worry about.

    The other guy did the shackle reversal kit on the REAR, which the lift depends on which reversal kit you buy. You are supposed to use the stock shackles on the reversal kits.

    Well the "hangers" are replaced with the shackle flip kit. If you are referring to the actual shackles themselves, then yes, they are stock, they are not the ORD HD Shackles.
