Bob Tarpey is starting off with a positive reputation.
Lowering my 89 F-150

I just can't get the back end of this truck down right. I've tried dropped shackles..(not enough drop), tried the flip kit (WAAY too much) and need to find that place where it would sit level and not give up all the ride quality. Any ideas?

Have you tried the drop hangers as well?

Rear Shackles=2"
Drop Hangers=2"
Axle Flip Kit=5"

I need about another 2" of drop my self....

LMC Truck, DJM Suspensions, Belltech all sell them...

Yeah , i think you need the hangers and shackles , that will drop the back 3-4 in , depending on what hole you use on the shackle....
