I want to do a shackle flip, but the $180 ORD kit is too much to spend right now. I saw people are making their own shackle flips using the stock hanger with a hole cut in it. Is this homemade flip strong/safe, and how much lift is it equivelent to? Does anyone know? Need about 4'' of lift out of it, not sure how I would caculate that...think it is shackle length divided by 2? The beauty is that these parts are thrown out when you do a ORD kit, so if it gets flubed up Im not out anything except some time. Sounds like a cheap trick though, if it works.
