    after your flip see where the truck sets (after it has taken a "set" on the suspension. Then measure your pinion angles... do a search there are numerous posts about pinion angle and how to fix it... my truck was already setup to have the perches welded... so all I have to do is get the optimum angle.

    The shackle flip will angle your axle up for you. I say put it together and see how close it is. My shackle flip and flat 2" block worked out about perfect on the angle.
