    Who\'s using the shackle flip

    While I'm doing my motor I thought about installing the shackle kit.
    I have to pull the tank to install the new fuel pump anyway.
    My ? is I what to run 3" exhaust out the side behind the rear wheel and am concered about clearance.

    Thanks

    You should be able to run the pipe in between the frame and the leaf spring. Thats what I've done with my 2 inch duals. I'm pretty sure there is room for another inch. If you really want, I could snap a picture of mine and email it to you or something.

    Thanks for the offer of a pic. I will wait to take you up on it after I take it to the exhaust shop to finish up after I do the motor.

    I have the flip kit, and am running single 3" on one side and had to cut the pipe where it bends out because the framemount was in the way. But other wise it should be fine.
