Shackle kit 97 350

Does anyone recognize this shackle kit? P.o can't remember where he bought it from. Also I'm not familiar with a stock setup if anyone has a photo so that I may compare the two. I appreciate the help

ORU's Reverse Shackle Kit 1992-1997 Ford 4WD F350 - Off Road Unlimited

It allows you to swap the ends of the springs and shackles to the rear for a 3" lift and potentially better ride. It looks like there are lift springs in the picture. Some of us, me included, mounted the front bracket further forward and installed stock 1999-2004 front Superduty springs for little to no additional lift and an even better ride. Search RSK with SD springs.

ORU made one version of the reverse shackle kit(RSK).

There is also Precision Metal Fab OBS RSK SD Spring Hanger Conversion Kit

And there is Sky Manufacturing www.sky-manufacturing.com - 9297F2503503inch4x4FrontShackleReversal

Off road unlimited. I remember more. That makes sense. It could be ORU risk. I know the front diff cover came from ORU so it is possible. Thanks for all the replies
