reverse shackle does work well ,if you dont want build it that is a pretty resonable price and will have everything you should need . the flip in the back might cause problems with pinion ange if you allready have a lift but thats an easy fix

If anything it would raise the pinion UP, don'tcha think? I mean, the angle, of course the pinion would be lower physically from the frame..

thats the potential problem.
if the truck allready has a lift in it and the pinion angle has allready been corrected with blocks, shims or perches rewelded etc the shackle flip will end up pointing the pinion way up . its a simple fix just turn the shims or tapered blocks around if it is pointing way up at worst you will cut and reweld the perches or whats an even better idea is to add a doubler (:

I have the sky shackle reversal in my '85 bronco as well.

If you already have a lift and it is a problem just have canada spring or similar place make a tapered block to correct it.

For the price of the sky stuff and the simple bolt in to existing holes I think it is well worth it.

If you have just the shackle flip in the rear, the pinion angle should be ok, you need a little bit of an angle to alow for the u-joint to flex and spread the grease around the needle bearings in the cup.

I installed the Sky-Man flip in my truck and it worked out really well, no problems yet.

Looking at putting one in my F350. It was a 250 but now its got the 60 upfront. It says a little modification to the frame on 250's? Anyone know why or done it on a F250 ? Anyways it looks like a awsome set up for what i need. The sale ig good till the end of the month? Oh looking at the Combo 5" front and shackle rear... Thanks guys[cheers]

I believe because of different Holes needed

i built my own

and the suspension is drooped in the pic so shackle angle is not static
