    Will an ORD flip and bolt swap fit my C2500 with a 14b ff?

    The ubolt flip will but the shackle flip kit will be a bit different. The offset from the frame will work and I think the bolt pattern will be the same but the height of the bracket for the 4wd is more than a 2wd. GM used the brackets to give the 4wds more lift so you will get more than a 4" lift from the 4" shackle flip kit. Otherwise, you're set.

    It still sits about 1.5-2" lower with the 4" block anyway. What are we talking about as far as the difference? 5-6" instead of 4"?

    If someone was doing a swap, could I use their old brackets for few more "s? Cheao lift is ALWAYS a good thing!!

    It should be a couple inches, so it might be what you're looking for.
    You might be able to swap the entire bracket set from a 4wd of similar year to lift it like a 4wd.
