Reverse Front Shackle kit

Thinking of installing a reverse shackle kit on my 97 cc I found a company called Sky's Off-road Design - Home anyone here do this install?? sounds like a much better option over the standard 2" leveling kit.

thanks Scott

Yes, the RSK is just for the front, but they also make a rear shackle flip kit

Modify your airbag brackets to move them so they are not streched out. Just make a spacer, or move the frome bracket down the proper amount, of the spring bracket up. What ever works best. Then you can use the shackle flip.
