How much lift does the shackle flip in the technical articles yield. Im guessing around 4?
Yep, it's around 4". If you build your own, you can make it whatever you want.
i got about 3.5" with mine, using 64" springs
A much betterer way is to use stock hangers. IE the ones at the front of your rear springs. Grimreaper, (name?) one of the mods, uses this. It's stronger than cutting a hole in the bottom of the stock rears, and you wont need to put any triangulation on the top. You should be able to get a set for next to nothing at the 'yard, who ever needs to replace those??
thats the way I did it too. found some front hangers off the rear springs of a 2 wheel drive for $20. cleaned them and painted them. just make sure to get your measurements down. I screwed mine up and only got about 1" but soon Ill be changing a few things and Ill move em back to get between 3 and 4 inch so I can ditch the rear blocks.
Grimreaper welded his to the frame, he suggests using bolts. I agree, but I'm lazy and probably would have done the same.
