Front Shackles, seen it used it heard of it?

This company claims to get 3-5 inches out of our front end for $150 bucks wondering if it acctually works or if itsets the geometry of the truck all wrong..
92-97 F-250/F-350 front shackle reversal - Sky's Off-road Design

looks like a frame drop to me so i see no problems with a front solid axle truck.

wondering what the 3" would do to the TTB front end tho.. as in could it be alighned after this install?

97 supercab 4x4: work truck. Reallly Loud stereo (16 speakers, none visable), 20's/35s, 6637, straight piped.
99vette: stock.
89crx, working on a idea that involves a 454 bigblock, 2.5tons, and boggers.
Custom built 12' jon boat: yea its got a 50 horse jet drive.

This is the basic design of the RSK that CaryT on here offers as well. Your looking at quite a bit more than 150. I think the 3" kit is around 300.


'97 F250 PSD

3 Gauge Pod
3" DP, 4" Straight pipe

Future Plans:
D60 Swap
DIY Intake

ALL COMING SOON!

It can be done on F250 TTB, just harder. Have to use drop brackets for the TTB pivots. Sky's is a good company.

Cannot be done on a F250 without a D60 IMO changes the way a TTB cycles..and is throwing $$ down a hole..again IMO Get a D60 then a RS kit and SD springs if you want a great riding truck.
