Downpipe comes with the turbo-back exhaust... whites diesel performance in florida is a great shop.

If you want a reverse shackle in the front you have to switch the front axle from a Dana 50 ttb to a Dana 60 solid axle from a f350

^^^ yup... as tor the shackle reverse in the rear, i wouldn't do it. It moves the rear slightly forward and looks funny as it is no longer centered in the wheel well. Do a RSK and DANA 60 up front and get the kit from PMF (performance metal fabrication i belive)

As for the down pipe i would get the one from dale at TYMAR performace but either one is good. The tymar one expands as clerance allows and comes so u can slide 4" exhaust right it and dont need an adaptor

If you want to put a Dana 60 up front here are some photos to get you an idea about the Precision Metal Fab reverse shackle kit.
