should be the same maybe a bit more from stress being at a certain point if it does not enough to notice and get thin leaves in a leaf pack for more flex

it will ride better, and flex a little more, not sure if you will notice it though

ya, shackle flip will give you a way better ride quality, and possibly a little more flex, and a little bit of a lift, depending on how you do it.

how is it fo heavy loads? when you flip the pivot point it
looses its ability to self center. Do you notice a difference or not?

Now I really notice that I do not have anti-sway bars.
Not the most fun to drive at highway speeds.....but then again that's not what it's for.;)

I did the flip on my 91 f 350....6" springs and no blocks.....I havent noticed any handling diff. but when i lift the truck on a hoist there is signifigantly less droop!
I flipped it to loose the blocks!
Good luck
