    Don't think there is one yet. Looks promising but personally I don't want to be the guinea pig. Would like to see a few people running it and abusing it.

    I am running it and so far its great

    The advantages i say were
    Adjustabe in 2 positions
    Greaseable shackle bushing
    Flip is built to the taper of the frame rails
    No more stock shackles which arnt greaseable and i have bent a few
    New shackles are 3/8304 stainless which is plenty strong
    Great company to work with

    Will post pics today

    If I'm thinking about this right... 5100's up front (not maxed out) + this in the back = relatively leveled with about +1.25" (rear) and +2" (front) lift? Because thats not bad for ~$450 when going to 2.5" and 3" approaches $1k for a reasonable set up (AAL at minimum and coils up front).


    Man I miss the "poor mans lift" option from the Xterra. $60 shackles + an hours work on the torsion bars up front, alignment and your done. 2 inches for $60. Awesome.

    FYI - The top setting on 5100's (part number 24-239370) is 2.5".

    Edit: My bad. Just reread your post. Yes, not maxed out is a little less than 2".

    Sorry, all I did was confuse the situation... There are four settings. 0, .85, 1.75 and 2.5.

    A block or cheap AAL would be cheaper but this looks like a much better option. I'm thinking about it. Do it! Be the guinea pig!

    Ok, so you could use this product + 5100's and have somewhere around +1.25" (rear) and +1.75" (front). Reasonable.

    Thanks Chris for stepping up and giving this kit a shot, being among the first few, and for reporting back here about it, I look forward to the pictures.

    If I recall, you have the OME Dakars, correct?

    I like the looks of these hangers. In the spring/summer I plan to upgrade to Allpro Expo leafs and I'd love to do this shackle flip as well. I may drill some new holes in the shackles to get closer to stock shackle length. I'm worried about having too much lift in the rear with Expos and shackle flip.

    A better solution would be add-a-leaf or to remove a leaf from a Expo spring pack if you really wanted a shackle flip, and minimal lift. You'd be only reducing lift by .3" to get a stock length shackle, and you couldn't redrill my shackle without hitting the original hole

    Thanks for the info! I do want to run a shackle flip because I like a performance gains. It's just tough to find the perfect leaf pack...

    You're welcome, does your truck have the TSB replacement 4 pack springs? I'd be more trusting of those updated springs with AAL than the early 3 pack crack prone ones

    Yeah, mine has 3+1. And I actually have an add a leaf on them already. It was made by a local spring shop. It gave me like 4" of lift and rides kind of stiff. The AAL is a long, single heavy gauge leaf. I figured the Expo leaf pack would be a bit softer than my AAL but still allow me to carry all the extra weight I have.
