it will ride softer, and you could manage to get 2-4" just the drop has to be 4-8" then (the center will only move half as much as the end)

i had something funny to write here but a crackhead stole it.

Just use ur stock mounts....take them off, flip them, drill holes and put them back on [d]

I took the rear spring front mounts from a donor vehicle and welded them in the back - instant shackle reversal no fab. Check out the auto wreckers, bring a drill and hammer to remove the mushroomed part of the rivets and hammer them thru [cheers]

I took out my factory blocks,have stock leaves & did a little fender trimming(3-4") and I have room for 39.5" no problem

Soon to be d60/10.25"

if your shackle length is excessive you will not like the sway

i dont mind any sway truck is really soft as is.....

Sky mfg.
see cj mike
when you keep the stock shackle arrangement and put in poly bushings you get way more articulation with the stock configuration.l
However i used the shackle flip to get rid of the factory blocks and adjust the "rake".(vehicle tilt).
This gives about 5 or 6 inches of lift if you keep the blocks. It also "pushes" the rear axle forward a bit at ride height.

cheeper would be the front hanger, either works fine

I installed the Sky Mfg units and they are nice.

Love the ride, it rotated my diff so I could get rid of the factory wedge blocks.

i thing boyzens design looks good...from what i can see and could look pretty close to a factory design and that will help tremendously when it comes to the prying eye of a nosey coppper.
And i agree......Nice Fab work on that ground clamp![f] [f] [f]
