    Anyone happen to know the stock, say eye to eye, shackle length? also, any specs on the correct caster angle would be great. Think the shackles that are on my K5 are longer than stock and with the 4" lift, it's making too much positive caster. Thanks in advance.

    I don't know why they would be different, but the stock front shackles on my '87 are 6'' long (top to bottom, not eye to eye)
