    Original Echobit Flip . Unpainted . Has instructions and tapered zero rates . I do not have centering pins . Pics of one installed in my sig pic links .

    100 bucks local cash or check .
    110 bucks shipped paypal or money order .

    They do not make these anymore . I have no need to use this on a second truck . And the price is firm . No tank removal to use this , and it flips around from side to side to allow 56 rears on a K5 with no cutting or welding of anything :D

    I have never seen it on a first gen . If the stock hanger is the same as a second gen it would work . Good question , sorry I do not know .

    I kow you replied first , but a PM came first so you would be second if they fit , and the first guy said no .

    All I ask is it be shipped via USPS ground mail to avoid any brokerage charges!

    I just hope that it winds up going my way, I've been hoping to find one of these things for a while now...

    He hasn't answered me all day in PMs or on board where I cross posted the part .

    If no answer tommorrow , I will move to you .

    Why don't you PM an address so I can get a quote started . I don't want to charge a lot for shipping , just what it costs to Canada . Is that fair ?

    They don't really need any , but I can scan it .

    You remove your springs to get them under the stock hanger .
    You bolt on the flip kit , left on left right on right if you have 52 inch springs
    You bolt on flip kit right on left and left on right if you have 56 inch springs
    You install springs , shackles .
    Use shims if not going with a CV .
    Bolt u bolts .
    Extend brake line either with new , or drop bracket , or buy taking it out of bracket and bending it a little ( I wouldn't ) .

    You go wheel :thumb:

    Sorry if you got really excited . I am going to try to make a set or two with a local member . If it comes to fruition , I will PM you .

    If this guy changes his mind , I will PM you about that too .

    No plans . MaxPF came by today , and took pictures and mic'ed em . We are planning on splitting the cost , his labor at the machine shop , my materials , and selling you a set :waytogo:

    No plans on doing this and getting carried away and having Echobit part two though . So its only a few here and there if we have time :deal:

    It won't be bent and tappered like the Echobit , the top and bottom will be equal , and a spacer will be on each side of the shackle :thumb:

    He tooky my flattops too , crossover soon on my :k5: :pimp:
