I need to c notch and reflip my shackles. I went from stock to 5/4 with beams and springs up front and an 8.8 flip and I immediately wanted to get the rear down.

Thanks I need to reprint the rims, I just had some flat black paint in the garage and decided to go with it. As for the black on the bottom, it's just dura liner from Meijers, the guy I got the truck from did it and did a bad job. He didn't sand it so it's peeling, I just need time go get around to re doing it. I also need to do the bumpers and the grille.

Default Re: Official Static Drop Thread

so you guys would know the answer probably. I have a 98 ranger just did the 4/5 djm kit. the rear axle flip kit is the problem. the U shaped brackets dont go all the way to the spring perches so the axle can rotate lie 5-10 degrees... is there something Im missing? not really wanting the axle to shift everytime I go from accelerating to decelerating.

ill post pics of the truck in a min too.

Do you have a picture of your problem? Hard to really tell what your talking about
