    Shackle flip and 4\" leaf spring?

    If i replace a 8" lift spring with a 4" spring and a shackle flip kit will it ride at the same height? /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    Here is a pic of my /forums/images/graemlins/burb.gif when i had 8" front springs, 4" ORD shackle flip and 4" rear springs in the rear. It sat pretty straight with that set up.

    That looks great and i think it sits pretty level. I think this is what i am going to do. Did you have to go with a longer travel shock for the back or will a shock for the 8" lift work fine? /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
