    I tow a 5000 lb boat. Has anyone had a problem doing the shackle flip and towing?

    Talk to Grim... he had some hassles that may or maynot have been related to the shackle flip. Over all I think it is a bad idea.... you don't want flex with towing. You might want to try running rancho 9000's in back and set them to super stiff when towing.
