Universal Shackle Flip Kit

Universal Shackle Flip Kit

Please allow a 4 business day turn around time for our shop to build your 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"

All custom widths will be within .010" of requested size

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. To help you determine your ride height and shackle length, the center of the shackle eyelet sits about 1 1/8" below the mounting plate. 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.

5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shockingly amazing
By GREG LEBLOND in CT on 9.24.2018
I just received this today (9/24/18) for my 05 Silverado. This couldn't have been more easy and perfect. Used one bolt hole from my existing hanger and it seriously was identical to my frame's dimensions... Couple quick drilled holes and it's in. SUPER BEEFY!!! Dimensions for build are spot on.. This is why I pick Ruffstuff over competitors. Killer product! 6+ stars if I could!

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.

Questions and Answers

Ask a Question


Matt K. on -- Asked: I am looking at putting this kit onto a 2001 Dodge ram 2500 diesel with 3 inch wide rear leaf springs. In the past I have seen kids like this require the need for a "Zero-Leaf" to be added under the spring pack. Does your kit require the use of a "Zero-Leaf"?? The 2nd part of my question is if I should be looking for a different leaf pack to replace the 3" wide leaves to shoot for a much smoother suspension on & off road, in addition to creating much more suspension travel than the 3" leaves ever would? (I still have my airbags I can easily bolt up for heavy loadsshould the need arise) Thank you very much for your assistance, itís GREATLY appreciated!!! -MK

Answered: That will depend on the vehicle. Doing a shackle flip can move the axle forward about a 1/4" since it is pushing the rear of the spring further from the frame. But if you have aftermarket lift springs or aftermarket lift blocks it can result in the axle moving almost 1" forward. To counteract this, you can drill another hole in your leaf spring perch to move the axle back, or some companies include a "zero-rate" spring, which allows the center pin to sit into it and then has another pin that would go into the factory axle perch hole to push the axle back. Since our kit is not a vehicle specific kit, we do not include any zero-rate springs. As for the spring width itself, I would probably stick with the 3" wide springs for strength and maybe just remove a leaf from the pack. I've turned 3/4 ton chevy 2.5" wide springs into a pretzel on the trail just under a 4 cylinder Toyota, granted I did not have an anti-wrap, but I can imagine under a full size dodge would be fairly easy to do with the diesel.
Christian on -- Asked: Hi, Im looking to do a shackle flip for my 1991 dodge ram w250. i would like to lift the rear 4" . do you guys happen to know what the dimensions would already be for that on a stock dodge ram including what size shackle i would need? i know that is asking a lot with little information.

Answered: Unfortunately we do not have that information. I can tell you that the center hole for the shackle mount on this kit is about 1 1/8" below the mounting plate to help you make your calculations.
Tj on -- Asked: Are bushings included?

Answered: Yes the bushings are include.
Liamhermkens on -- Asked: How much lift does the mount give me ? So I know how tall my shackle measurement should be

Answered: This kit with a 4" shackle would get about 4" of lift
Charles on -- Asked: Are they sold separately or as a pair?

Answered: Sold in Pairs
