ORD Shackle Flip with ford 3\" wide springs........... The reason I ask is that I am going to be putting ford 57" springs under my K5, but these are the 1-ton, 3" wide springs. I bought the shackle brackets and front spring hangars from ford so I could swap them out with the chevy ones when I did the spring swap. Then I was just gonna cut out the bottom of the shackle brackets to do a flip on the cheap. But the ford brackets aren't as "tall" as the chevy ones. The bolt jole for the shackle doesn't hang down from the fram as far, which would rob me of a couple of inches of lift I was hoping to gain. What I need is a shackle bracket that hangs down as far as a chevy bracket, with the correct distance from the frame to the center of the spring pack (which is shorter than Chevys), and that wil accommodate a 3" spring. I already spent beaucoup bucks on the oem ford brackets, and now I don't want to use them. Sky makes a shackle flip bracket for ford 3" springs, but It doesnt hang down as far as the chevy brackets. I realize R&D would prolly make it expensive for you to do a one-off, but do you ever plan on offering a flip bracket that will accomodate ford 3" springs? Just asking before I explore other avenues... BTW, the reason I ask you is BC I really like the look and "beefiness" of the ORD shackle flip brackets. Nice work. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif And the fact that you can build some lift into the bracket itself.
