    I have a 73 'burb and am woundering how much lift will be provided by a shackle flip (in the rear).

    Also if any body has any info. on where to get a kit and any pros or cons to this type of lift.

    The rig currently has a 4" block in the rear and a 2" body lift.

    Thanks

    Offroad Design sells them. 4 inch is the biggest you can go I think. Theyre meant to replace lift blocks though, I dont know if you had planned on keeping yours or not. I dont know if anyone has tried both and I doubt it would give anything close to a good driveshaft angle with both together but im not positive. Here is their link- http://www.offroaddesign.com/catalog/catalog.htm
    I think im going to replace my 4 inch blocks for these, I would also like to know some info about them. Mostly if they will give me a good driveshaft angle like the blocks do?

    I am running the ORD shackle flip. Gets you 4". My drive angle is fine with no adjustment. Very easy install.

    I just finished installing my 2.5" flip in my 87 the other day. I still have not put the axle in though:rotfl:

    You will be impressed if you get it from ORD.
