    I bought your shackle flip for my 1990 Chevy 3/4 ton, and haven't gotten around to installing it yet. I recently bought a '99 Suburban and was wondering if the flip will work on this truck instead. The reason I ask, is that behind the stock shackle hangars in the back the frame dips down, as opposed to the truck's frame which remains straight. Thanks.

    It'll take some work to get it on the 'burb. The bolt patterns are different, but it should work out once you have that problem solved. You should be able to just re-drill the frame and make it work.
    You should keep in mind the newer 'burbs use a 60" spring instead of the 63-64" spring that the trucks use, so don't plan on an easy spring swap.
