    WTF!!! 185.00 for ORD\'s Shacle FLIP!!!

    I could have sworn when they first came out they were like 50 bucks each!

    185.00 bucks for a welded plate with a shackle connection. Damn

    thats 185.00 for the rear and then you need to buy shocks and springs for front.

    WHY OH WHY do good things come at a high price /forums/images/icons/frown.gif /forums/images/icons/frown.gif

    You could fab up your own. After you spend the time measuring and setting up nice and welding and cutting out, They might be worth it.

    use 2wd chevy front spring brackets. Bet your local salvage yard can beat the heck outta that price. And it sets the shackle angle about right too, unlike mine which are dropped through the bottom of the stock bracket. Of course the ord stuff is new, custom fabbed, and hassle free. But there ARE options.
