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?

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.

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.
