    I saw a picture of a 69 chevy truck with the ORD shackle flip kit and the rear axle was no longer in the center of the rear wheel opening. IS this normal or was there some thing else wrong with this truck? I am thinking about useing the ORD shackle flip and still what the axle to be in the center of the wheel opening

    i can see how it would push it foreward a bit. maybe like an inch. but not too much.
    it makes sense if you think about it.
    adding length to one side in turn would make it look like you shortened the other.
    this is why i plan on going with the 2.5 inch flip and 4 inch springs.
