    Sky makes great products, and there customer service is outstanding. I would recommend them highly. I have used them before and I would use them again. Save yourself $80 and get the Sky flip and deal with a great company.

    If I were buying a flip kit I'd buy the sky one. I had a set of ORD flips, great quality pieces but $80 is a big savings. That and the adjustable shackle location is a big plus to me.

    They look tuff but why 2 holes? 52"s and 56's? There was a guy that started a post on these a while back and said the holes didn't line up with the existing hole like they should have. But I would just drill new holes if I were saving 80 beans.

    When you flip it you want to move the shackle hole foward a tad (for a better ride), this little difference makes them left and right side pieces, with two holes it doesn't require any more production time (in set up) and you can alway convert to 56's with no issues.

    I just got the sky flip. Looks awesome cant wait to install it in about 2 weeks, when I have enough money for TC 2" lift springs for the rear!

    what az-k5 said. Not to mention if you run 56s or 57s use the farther back hole with a good shackle and your angle will be real nice. ORD moves the shackle hole forward 1 or 1.5" from the stock location for better shackle angle.
