    After sitting in my garage for awhile I decided to install my reverse shackle kit. I must say the ride did change to softer feel and overall very happy. I am sure I will get some more droop out of this setup which was the purpose of the build. I am sorry but I do not want to build or sell them it was just a one time thing for me. I know some people have some in the works and they are in my opinion an added bonus for a better ride and better suspension travel.

    More flex and also easier to lift your truck with shackles instead of buying leaf pack
