    I don't have the measurements for the AP standard leafs currently. I could build you a set I'd just need the unloaded eye to eye measurement of the spring.

    OK, finally took the time to call AllPro about measurements of the 2nd gen standard leaf packs. Eye to eye, center to center is 55.75" . I hope this helps in your manufacturing process, and hopefully before the end of the summer I will order a set of your shackle flip kits.

    I'll have to look into that one, that's a big difference, I don't think there is room on the mounts to move the tabs back that far.

    It is an interesting question. It would change the stock shackle angle by A LOT. Without actually looking at it I'd speculate it would actually cause the factory shackle to push back so far that your up travel would be somewhat limited.
