Shackle flip help...
I put in a 3.5" leveling kit in the front end of my 94.5 f250(2 door super cab, long bed). IT brought it past level but that's fine. I think with a simple shackle flip it will level out and look great.
I have read the shackle flip write up in the 7.3 tech files but I had a couple extra questions before I start....
I was just wondering.... how much jacking I need to do on the trailer hitch before I can cut the rivets off the mounting plate? Will I get it in a neutral balance at the shackle by just jacking enough to not pick the tires up off the ground? Or do not to go more than that?
Also, if you can recall, how much additional jacking was needed to bolt the mounting plates back to the frame after the shackles are flipped approx?
These may sound like stupid questions but I don't want to get started and find out that I don't have enough travel in my jacking equipment to complete the job.
Thanks for any help.
