    I'm convinced that a Shackle flip will help the ride on my '84 K5 but I don't what lift it any. Anyone ever work out a way to do this with out getting into the chain reaction Lifts start (steering, drive shafts, etc)

    I'm not lifted. Would the 2.5 make it nessecary to mod anything else?

    Thanks for the input....But.. .. Now where do I find details about a 2.5in flip.

    As you can guess I'm new at this. Just starting out on a love affair with an beautiful all black K5. It's in so good of shape i hate to start 'fixing' it up. /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif
