    I hope you can answer my question.

    The ORD shackle flip seems to be a very good way to lift the rear of a truck. But, as far as I can see, ORD only offers shackles for 4WD Blazer/Suburban ...

    Can you tell me, if ORD has a 4" shackle flip that fits my 1992 Chevrolet C1500 2WD short bed, std cab?

    And, does ORD ship to germany?

    I wrote this in an eMail to ORD, didn´t get an answer yet.

    I don't know if the 2wd is the same as the 4wd. In the earlier trucks, the shackle flip would bolt on but it gives more lift since the 2wd trucks have spring brackets that are shorter than a 4wd. This is how they "raised" the 4wd trucks from the factory so the 4wd would be taller than a 2wd. I can't think of anyone I know that would have a 2wd '90s truck around here, it's pretty much 4wd only country. Anyone else have a 2wd they could compare to a 4wd?
    I probably couldn't even find one in a dealership...

    We can ship overseas, UPS is easiest and most expensive and we can use the postal system which is cheaper, slower and generally cannot be tracked.

    Hi Stephen!

    Today I´ve looked under a GMC Yukon 4WD, probably a ´95 or ´96. The hanger that Truck has looks very similar to mine.

    Here are two fotos of my trucks rear hanger on the left side:

    Maybe this helps to identify, if the ORD 4" hanger #GU48010 fits my truck?

    you're best bet would be to takemeasurements of the bolt holes on the spring hanger. that's what's really going to matter. to find out how much lift you'll get, just measure the length from shackle hole to shackle hole.

    the holes on my(94 4x4) spring hanger measure:

    Right to left 4" apart

    Top to bottom 2.5" apart

    Thanks shorts!

    Thats it, the holes on my hanger have exactly the measures you mentioned:

    There is still one thing I need to know, and that is if the shackle has the correct width,

    Stephen, would you please take a look?:

    I know, it would be easier to make a call on the phone, but there is a 8 hours time difference between us...

    achim1000, those are some great sketches right there /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif as for the width, they are the same. i have drawings and measurements of my hangers when i was drawing up plans to build my own and i remember all the numbers. i'm sure the neighbors thought i was crazy rolling around under my truck with a tape masure /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif
