    What does the \"shackle flip\" consist of?

    Just curious. Pics would be great.

    BTW, is there any easy way to make up for the 1/2" of sag in the rear of my 79? Someone told me I can the bottom spring around or something???

    if you want the ORD flip check out Jason's(jekrown) write up
    <a target="_blank" href=http://www.communtiy.webshots.com/user/jekbrown>www.communtiy.webshots.com/user/jekbrown</a> It's just a bracket that is wellengineered to achieve a 4" lift with stock springs.
    to get rid of the saggy but get the ORD 1" add a leafs..theres a write up in the tech sections, sorry no linky.

    The link won't work. So you recommend the 1" add a leafs over the shackle flip? Am I reading that right?

    Thanks

    I put the "i" in the wrong spot on my first post.<a target="_blank" href=http://www.community.webshots.com/user/jekbrown>Jason's Flip kit install</a> It will give you a 4" lift in the rear, to eliminate the current set up, I take it you have blocks?? But if all you want is to bring the rear up that 1/2" or so just get a <a target="_blank" href=http://coloradok5.com/ordaddaleafreview.shtml>1" zero rate from ORD</a>.
