adjustable shackles :)

I have the DJM shackles on mine with the flip kit, but any should work.

i clamped my springs and that gave me another half to 3/4 of an inch more drop. and it gets rid of alot of wheel hop and stiffens up the ride. i like it alot.

1/4 inch steel bolting your bottom spring to the rest of the spring "pack"( i guess you can call it.) its just like a slapper bar, or traction bars, just the cheap version. pm me if more descripion is needed.

i was debating doing that also. Just wondering how it would ride. I definately need to stiffen my rear end, and get 1/2" more drop. Thanks for assuring me with it.

I know Belltech's shackles are adjustable. That's what mine are.

I just installed a "leaf spring clamp" on my truck a few mins ago. Gave me 3/4" drop in the rear. I bought the kit at autozone for $9.99. The ride is a little stiffer, and lower. Now I'm completely leveled out :head:
