my 97 f350 reverse set up for the guys here in Wahington

<hr style="color: rgb(209, 209, 225); background-color: rgb(209, 209, 225);" size="1"> <!-- / icon and title --> <!-- message --> <!-- BEGIN TEMPLATE: ad_showthread_firstpost_start --> <!-- END TEMPLATE: ad_showthread_firstpost_start --> this is what i made to minimize raiseing it any higher.Its comes out to a 1" lift can probably get to 0 or .5" if really wanted to but it would take a bit more work on in the shackle hanger area,but i'm real happy with it and rides SO much better. I did once when it was on 44's and loved it ,but due to tickets i lowered it back down.

So it just puts your shackles up a couple inches, increasing the arc of the spring right?

Well no on 80 to 97 trucks they put the shackles in front of the axle instead of behind like they used to do,and like they do on the newer ones. So what I did was put the shackle in the rear,and hard mount the front . I didnt ark the spring any more or less.If your wondering why its arched thats because its a 4" lift spring.I did move the front end ahead 1" thoe for when the axle swings bak it dont get close to the wheel well.
