    I am thinking of doing a shackle flip for the rear, I have 6" skyjackers up front, what rear springs will give me a level ride???

    I aint no shackle flip expert but from what I hear it gives about 4" of lift!
    I would not assume that a 2" spring will sit your rig level only cuz most rear spring packs are rated for the weight of a Pick-Up! I run 4" in front and 51/2" in the back and my K5 sits level.
    I would talk with ORD and find out what they recomend for a total of 6" in the rear with the extra weight inmind....
    Good Luck
