ok so i put a flip kit on my 97 standard cab. i had already taken a leaf spring out and i left the drop shackels on it. and it rides like shit. i have never been in a truck that rides as rough as mine does. just wondering if anyone has any suggestions

hopefully you have a notch. I would also put stock shackles back on it to raise it up just a little...

Thats like a 9 inch drop, I couldnt imagine a regular notch even helping with that...

6" flip + 1" Removed leaf + 2" Shackles = Shitty ride.

What kind of shocks are you running? and are you running relocators to correct the bad shock angle?

you will need drop shocks i would think... Just because you have the relocators the shocks are still prob. bottomed out.

i had a flip, hangers, n shackles. it was around 10" drop. i had a bolt in notch that didnt do shit and even with the shock relocaters n stock shocks they were still fully compressed. buy diff shcoks maybe bigger notch and helper bags :imo

Take the shocks out and your rear will probably drop another 3-4 inches. Then buy the appropriate length shocks.
