ok i gotta 87 f250. i have like a 6 inch block in the rear and way6 to stif springs. is there a kit i can buy to change the rear shackle sos that where the leaf meets the shackle is below where it is connected to the frame. would it be fairly easy to build? lookin at STranger for input here, anybody else ever done/seen what im talkin avout.

and what would be a nice set of flexier leafs.

go to a wrecker and grab the front hanger for the rear leafs, and mount that in the back, works like a charm

depending on how much lift you want, i believe u can get an easy 4-6" out of the front hanger. get the one off of an f250 or 350, they have 6 bolt holes opposed to 4 on the f150

shakle flip is simple,best way to do it is the way Stranger does it,he flips the whole hanger and then builds a plate for the back!
