Thanks for the GREAT info and ideas RB. So now I'm thinking that if I fabbed a rear bracket like yours and corrected the pinion angle that I'd be in business. Cool!

Thanks,
Andy

Question

Can someone please explain what "pinion angle" is? What has to be concidered when flipping shackles? Is it the angle of the universal joints in relation to the position of the diff and t-case?
I have done the rear shackle flip, keeping the front mount in its original position. No other mods have been done to allow for or compensate for pinion angle. As in these links.

Pinion angle is the angle of your driveshaft to the yoke on your t-case or differential.

Hey RB, if you could I would love a set of drawings for those brackets and anything else needed for this mod to work. I'm going to do the SOA up front and would like to stay away from blocks. Also thought about getting some 4" rear springs and just raising stuff about 3" rather than 7". hehe

Thanks,
Anthony

I think you are confused a little... the SOA gives you 6-7" REGARDLESS of springs... just as the rear shackle inversion will get you the same 6-7" REGARDLESS of springs...that's why you don't need blocks with this mod

RB - ok, think I got that now. What I mean though is that an option could be to get 4" rear springs and do something else in the rear to gain the additional 3" you would need to cover the SOA up in front.

Would still like to keep everything else open as an option though,

Thanks,
Anthony

Well...now that you have a 4" spring, you would need a 2-3" block to level it out tpo the SOA up front...or... mod the OEM shackel mont like described above to get 3"...but be careful. Taking the risk of doing this type of mode always turns into more than you bargained for...

Of course it is! It wouldn't be any fun if it went exactly as planned. I would like to stay away from blocks whatever I do and I figured it would be easier to make a 3" mod versus a 7" mod. Could be wrong though, that's why I'm here. hehe

Thanks,
Anthony
