Goldilocks finally got her altitude adjustment

After 3 years of owning her she finally got some love! And had to take her for a well deserved cruise!

Life isn't tied with a bow, but it's still a gift.
Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly. Leave the rest to God!
It's scary when you start making the same noises as your coffee maker.

Spindles & shackle/hanger combo?

Building a small, high rpm engine
with the perfect bore, stroke and rod ratio is very impressive...
like a highly skilled Morrocan sword fighter with a Damascus Steel Scimitar.

Cubic inches is like Indiana Jones with a cheap pistol....

Re: Goldilocks finally got her altitude adjustment

Well done, that thing is sharp! I always thought that would be about perfect for the rear, to get the axle above the springs and then push it up a little with a shackle to keep from having to cut the frame, and to retain some load capacity. I'm glad to see that it works. Maybe you can also let us know how it rides, compared to stock.

I wondered as well. My thought on my 3/4 ton was do the flip kit & relocate the rear shackle bracket down the appropriate amount for about a 6-7" drop vs. ~8".
Popping in a lift shackle sure would be easier
