    The ORD kit includes everything to do the swap. All you need is a cutoff wheel, or an air hammer, or a torch or all three. Also, use the search feature on the toolbar. I don't care what your question is, it has already been asked and answered. Good luck with your build. Kevin

    Welcome to the site. The shackle flip kit is for the rear only. The front you will need to buy springs. You should need to buy anything else other than, as previously state, something to remove the rivets from the old shackle mounts.

    Only paid members have access to the search feature.

    ORD flip in the rear is straight forward. No shackle flip for the front, get some 4" lift springs.

    Or people realize what a great feature it would be and pay for the info. Always another answer.

    And it does not seem to clutter PBB too badly, so maybe we are just a bit more gracious and don't gripe about things as much.

    I have not done it yet, but in my research and talking to others that have done the SF, zero rates to move the axle are often purchased and installed.
