    So I have been looking around and cant really find who makes 1.5" shackles non-flip.

    I read a post that just buying the quadratec xj shackles wont work due the Tacoma's are flipped upside down.

    The reason I do not want a shackle flip kit is I want to run the OME Dakar's leafs but dont want that much of a lift in the back. I would run the 1.5" drop shackle so call it, the Dakars, and angle shims.

    So who makes a quality drop shackle kit?

    I know if you do the flip kit it's possible but I think the op was talking about the stock ones does anyone make lowering shackles for a stock replacement

    there is no adding lift or lowering for the stock hanger you are correct.

    OP- you want load capability without lift?
