Truck looks excellent!

Can somebody post a link to the BDS page with the shackle flip, I cannot find it on their very poorly laid out site....

I know the part number from BDS is 012509, I just cannot find the page that tells you what you get with the kit and all for $235.

That is a good idea Bayly. The tabs are just cut with plasma and then clamped together to make them the same when drilling and rounding the ends.

Cool, wish I had a plasma cutter. I saw on pirate4x4.com they had some deal on a new brand that just came out and the guys on the site get a deal of like 400 bucks for it compared to a $700 retail price.

macc,


I wish you had been doing this like a few months ago before I bought my rear shackle Flips. Im ending up having to modify mine hardcore since I got two right brackets and the Gusseting was terrible. (thanks RRG) although I didnt purchase them directly from him.

Im going through welding new ears out of 3inch .25in angle iron and am gussetting the tops out of 1inch .25wall tube.

quick question tho for ya. what diameter did you drill the hole out to on the lower ears of the bracket that runs through the eye of the shackle??? Im thinking its 5/8s. I want to switch it out for some grade 8 hardware since im betting im gonna have to torch it off to get it apart.

thanks,

-john

Can you make them for a 1500? We have 2.5" rear springs.

I deifinetly want a pair if you can make them for the 1500. I measured where the shackle bolts to the mount and it measures 3". What other measure would you need, if any.

Thanks guys. I will find someone with a 1500 and mesure up the stuff needed to make a sec and get them built. 3' sounds right since the 2500 springs are 3' and the mount is 3.5".

I will get on making a couple sets monday and get info posted. will make 1500 and 2500/3500 shackel flips.

To install shackel flips you will need to support the frame of the truck cut 8 rivits remove a couple bolts. Then all you need to do is bolt new bracket to frame and reconect the springs using old shackel.

it adds about 4.5-5" of lift so new shocks will be needed. I have the shackel flip and 3" of block lift with AAL and the drive line seems fine.

The price will 150$ +shiping. that will come with new brackets and grade8 bolts to mount it. I am goign to be sending them out with only a primer coat of paint if someoen wants powder coating that will be a little extra.

I need a set what else would I have to buy. My truck has a 3 1/2 lift in back and rear squats, my only concern is would 4 1/2 to 5 inches be too high. I am trying to level it out and it is 1 inch low. I figured if I put this in and take the aal and put the stock block in it would be level what are your thoughts.
