    I'm getting parts together to do my 57" spring swap with the echobit shackle flip. At the same time I want to do a rear shock relocation kit so I can use new shocks, the shocks I currently have will only extend about 2" past the axle mount.

    I ordered one from 55willy and it was $100 with shipping. Hasn't come in yet, but I've seen some pics online of it...

    MOO is too rich for my blood /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    I knew 55willy was making them, but I also knew he was having trouble meeting demands, so I have not sent him an email yet.

    Try DepDog. He was going to make a set-up for me at one point if I hadn't ran out of money. I think he was doing it only as a side job for extra money and not commiting a ton of time to make a business out of it. I could be wrong though, so check with him.
