    I want to get away from the lift blocks that I have in the rear of my k-5 but want to keep the way the rear rides. I know Steve did his artical on the ORD flip Shackles. has anyone had any problems afterwards did anyone have any shims that they had to add after the swap?

    I didn't have any problems after the flip, I already had the tcase lowered with the blocks, but after I installed the 1" add-a-leaf (5" total lift) I got a slight vibration, so I might add a small shim for now, but plan on using a CV-style shaft with the ORD doubler.
