    Thanks, Stephen!

    The Shackle Flip Kit arrived here (Hamburg, Germany) one week ago on March 14th. So USPS ground shipping took 6 weeks, as expected.

    I guess you already had some german costumers, because of that, what you wrote in german on the parcel /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    Unfortunately the german customs official didnt believe that it was a gift, so I had to pay toll and tax, but that was not too much.

    Achim,

    Will you be able to convince the TUV that this part is "legal" once you install it?

    I've heard that the TUV can really make things hard for people who want to make changes to their vehicles....especially in areas like suspension which could be perceived as a "safety" issue...????

    Hi Greg,

    I´m not sure, if the TUV will approve it. I think I will not even tell the TUV, I guess (hope) they wont see the modifications, because there are very few Trucks here to compare!

    Although it is right to have a technical survey on each car for safety reasons, the TUV can be a real PITA...

    Der deutsche TÜV kann einem den Spass and der Freud' richtig vermiesen! Ich finde es weitaus angenehmer, wie die Regeln hier in Nebraska gehandhabt werden; Shackle flip hier ist kein Problem! Viel Spass jedenfalls mit der Schrauberei! /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    ooops...
    Mit ´ner deutschen Antwort hätte ich hier gar nicht gerechnet! /forums/images/graemlins/ooo.gif Ist vielleicht netter für den Rest, wenn wir hier englisch schreiben?! Was machst Du denn in den USA?

    Schrauben werde ich erst in ca. 5-6 monaten, geht nicht vorher, ich ziehe um etc...

    Obviously we can continue writing in german, since everyone seems to understand anyway /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif
