    im putting a shackle lift on my truck, i took out the stock shackles and had to beat them out, my leaf springs immediately bent upward toward the frame, no i cant get them down to put on the new shackles how can i get them down? if anyone in nc wants to do it for me today or tomorrow i will pay you 50 bucks and pick you up, i have full tool box to use


    its starting to piss me off but idk how to correct it, no matter how high i jack up the fram the leafs go up with it hell i almost jacked it up so high it was in the brink of flipping

    finally got them on, with a little grinding a hammer and a bottle jack, my shock mounts are frozen on so im headed to raleight tomorrow to get some billy 5125's and replace them

    i think it was such a bitch because my frame is a little bent and i know that can throw everything off
