    I have the echobit shackle flip in the rear and add a leafs and only 4 inch springs in the front and i cant really afford to buy new springs right now. i was thinking about keeping the shacle flip in there but bolting the spring right to the flip and remove the shackle. i knoiw it'll take alot of the give out but am i gonna break the rear bolt off or will it be ok?

    removing the shackle and bolting directly to the bracket would be very bad, how would the spring flex at all with 2 fixed points? why don't you remove your add-a-leaf?
