Default Belltech 6400... How To??

Alright folks obviously I'm looking to add about 2'' in the back... I've been looking into these 6400 shackles and haven't found any info on what else I would need/need to do.

I have an 03 Edge 2wd...

Do I only have to switch out the shackles or is there more to it?

yes its not too bad. the hardes part in swithcing shackles is dealing with the extreme force the leafsprings have. here are the pics from when we did them on my buddy's Level II. hoever, we did not change to beltech. he was just replacing his die to some rust:





We were lucky enough to have a lift to pull the back of the truck up to get some seperation of the frame and leafs:







you will need a grinder to grind off the old rivets
