    thanks guys. I tried to add some useful info in the captions, instead of just my usual smart rear-end-edness. ;)

    More info to come in the captions too...there are some overall thoughts/ideas on the shackle flip install that would definitely be useful for peeps like me (ie no help from friends and not the greatest tool selection). Anyone with a fully stocked 4x4/machine shop can do these kinds of things...it takes so effort and occassional ingenuity to do it with poopy tools! ;)

    Anyway, assuming all goes well, most everything should go back on tomorow...pics will follow, of course!

    Jek,

    Nice work bud!!! I have a whole new appreciation for photos like that after doing my own shackle flip not too long ago.....I had all the same problems you are having too. Except that where you say "16 years of rust / 16 years of dirt..." make that 30 years worth in my case!! [​IMG]

    It's a great feeling when it's all done.....keep going, and keep posting pics!

    yeah Frank. Once I get this stuff done, and my steering situation worked out, we'll have to get all the CK5ers in this area together for a TSF run or something. That'd be sweet. =)

    Anyway, just found out that the u-bolts I got from the 4x4 shop are about 3/4" to short. doh! Well, guess I can do some other stuff in the mean time...shorter bolts are sposed to be in by 1:30. I am always skeptical when a shop says that...we'll see. ;)

    How much total lift did that give you in the back. Was that just the revolver shackle, and the shackle flip.
