Universal Shackle Flip Kit

Universal Shackle Flip Kit

We need a couple of questions answered before we can make these for you.


A= What is the distance between the frame and the inner side of the bushing in the leaf spring?"

Measurement A may be no greater than 3 1/2" and no less than .75"

B= How wide are your leaf springs at the bushing?

Measurement B can be no smaller than 2.5" (for 2" wide spring) and no larger than 4"

C = 4.5 inches and we do not have an option to change.

We have done away with the "female style" shackle receiver end and went with a much stronger design. This design allows the use of a non brand specific loose shackle. We suggest welding them on, but if you decide to bolt them on, you will have to drill 4 holes in the frame because these do not fit any stock bolt pattern.

The bushing sleeve is 2" x .25 wall DOM and is attached on four sides to the 1/4" plate torsion box mounting bracket. This enclosed design eliminates the need for any additional gusseting other kits require. The Bushings themselves are 1 1/2" in the minor diameter so you can flex them hard without tearing up the bushings and the bushing shoulder is 1/4" thick for the same reason.

If you intend to bolt them on, we would recommend removing the gas tank to install them. They mount through 4 holes you need to drill and after removing the gas tank (if necessary) should take no more than 45 minutes to install. The Brackets are 4 1/2" - 6" over stock depending on shackle length used. You should always use a shackle length that is ideal for your chosen springs.

Everything in the picture is included, on the shackles we offer either a 4",5",6", or 7" long.

To answer these questions either call or put it in the note field, if we do not see the note we will call you. These are custom-made but can usually be completed as soon as two days. Since these hangers are made to order all sales are final and cannot be returned or changed once submitted

5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 The Bee's Knees
By Alex Arteaga in OH on 2.25.2017
Although I the parts came later than I wanted, The flip kit was exactly what what I needed. The parts are perfect and some might say overbuilt its better than underbuilt! I cleared another inch and improved my pinion angle and couldnt be more pleased. I've got a few more projects in the works and will be using nothing but Ruff Stuff products. A note worthy fact, 9/16 by 4.5 bolts are not easy to find. If you do go with the 9/16 bushing make sure and get yourself some bolts in the harware section of the site. Not even Summit had them in stock. The Best fabricating products hands down.
