Home brew junkyard shackle reverse for obs??

I was at the junk yard today and saw a lifted excursion and a 99 f250 4x4. both gassers. I dont see these trucks much in the junkyard.

I looked at the front leaf spring brackets. they look completly bolted on. I pondered removing them to make my own shackle reverse kit for my 97 CCLB 4x4.

just wondering if this is possible or if someone has done it, and if it requires much work. i know the reverse shackle kits out there are $300+ dollars.

I just thought of maybe getting around this price in exhcange for some $30 brackets.


thanks for your consideration on this. cheers

It's possible but the frame thickness is different so it's not going to be a complete bolt in

I am really hoping that the crossmember in the RSK stiffens up the front end of my frame and takes some of the creak out of my dash.

I dont want to go that high. The 2-3" kits dont have that bar right?

I was just wondering. Im still new to the obs world but Ive been hacking on stuff and making junkyard solutions for years... thought this might be one.
