    hey derek i haven't heard of neone makin 2" lift block that is tapered to a 6" lift. from the write up on the shackle flip on ords site doesn't seem hard and i'm sure you and whoever is gonna help will do it. just read up on the flip. write up on shackle flip. and also there is borregok5's shackle flip that is 100% bolt on. says ya get 5 3/4" lift. heres the link. borrego's k5 shackle flip and ya can get the ord zero rate which should bring ya a lil bigger than 6 inches to get rid of saggy butt that alot of k5s have. well hope i helped. call me when ya do this if ya do it cuss i wanna help. later.

    Shouldn't be a problem for anyone reasonably "mechanically inclined". Don't know about the blocks, I don't use them.

    Oh, one other thing... It will go much easier installing them if you take the tools out of your a$$ first. Probably be allot more comfortable too... /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif

    He really should index that site and add a search feature. There are several things he sells that are not easily available from the menu/nav bar or his catalog... Just do a search in the ORD forum. It should turn up something.

    Hmm, just did a search and found a post from Stephan with the link, but it's not working. Just post on the ORD forum and/or PM Stephan...

    Hmmm, looks just like the link I found and tried earlier, but it didn't work then... Oh well, I guess I'm SOL again... /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif
