    Hi, I recently found a very good price for a set of shackle flip brackets for the newer 88-up chevy trucks, and was wondering what the physical difference is between those brackets and the ones that you sell specifically for 73-91 fullsize blazers? Thanks

    design is different as well. One has the L shape so it can go under the frame and support it(the 70 something to 91) and the newer style one doesn't.

    and also the kick out is different. i believe the newer style has the hanger a little closer to the frame..

    very likely, the out to out on the frames of the newer trucks is much wider than older ones.
