Its pretty easy, I think the easyest way is get a set of rear spring hangers (off the front of the spring) and bolt the to the frame and your good to go[cheers]

a shackel flip moves the shackle from the front of the spring to the rear makes it so the axle will move back when you hit bumps and makes it smoother, it also lifts it. i guess i want do do a shackle reversal, move the shackle from the front, to the rear spring mount and make a front spring mount thats solid. here is it

ya i was gunna say, you dont want to do a shacle flip at all, since they come fliped down from factory, you just want to do a reversal. Is it really worth it?? and it would only lift it if you make the mounts and shacle longer than stock...

yah you have to, you put the shackle t the back so you have to make the front higher too
