If you know of any parts trucks take the front hanger off by grinding or viva la torch and weld or bolt it in place of the rear hanger. Instant 4"

See if this helps. I didn't look into how much lift it gives, but it's worth a look <IMG SRC="smilies/smile.gif" border="0">

Lemme see if I got this straight: You take the front shackle mount off a 3/4 ton (the front? axle) and mount in the rear. Do you use the same bolt holes? Will a one ton shackle work? I Scoutdude's pictures worked, I wouldn't have to ask so many dumb questions.

You can also remove the rear shackle and cut the bottom out of the hanger then replace the shackle in a flipped position.

I checked out the site that Muddin Said and I an going to do it tonight I already have my spinrgs loose all i am waiting for is the cutting torch to take out the bottom section. I am also going to put gussets going up to the top for extra support. I will keep you updated on how it goes.

I have been thinking about making kit that will flip the shackle down. I can cut the parts out on plazma table so they are clean and consistant. but i need a volunteer in the sac area( the guys at work like there lift blocks i guess?) the only thing i need is the money for materials, there are welders, gringers, ect. that i use. If anyone is interested please send me a PM or e-mail. I normally just do toyota stuff but i think that there is a great need for some thing like this. Thanks
