shackle relocator

like the title says... I bought my truck some years ago with a leveling kit on it. I didn't pay any attention to it until now. I am just wondering what company makes a bracket that goes on the back part of the front spring that relocates that shackle about 2.5" lower. The bracket is just a plate that is bolted over where the factory location is and the factory shackle bolts onto it. Any help will do. Thanks in advance.

I think you are talking about this: Ford F250 F350 Superduty and Ford Excursion 2" Front Shackle Leveling Lift Kit | eBay

2016 F-350 CCSB FX4 Platinum 6.7L
2002 F-250 CCSB 4x4 XLT 7.3L (SOLD)

They generally came with the front hanger kits, If you are looking for one try a lift shackle instead, ebay and jc whitney have many to choose from. A 2" lift shackle will be 4" longer than stock, I am running 4.5" front hangers and 2.25" lift shackles(4.5" over stock shackle length) for a 4.5" lift. The shackles were $37 from ebay.

Well I don't know if there are new hangers on the truck or not. I know that my truck seems to run high. Not looking at lifting it. I'm in the market for shocks and just trying to figure out what I have now. I like how high my truck is now.

Comes to find out that I have more than a leveling kit. Ordered my bilstein and they came in today. Found out that I ordered the wrong ones for the front. It was late one night when I placed the order and I just went off what I thought I had for a lift. Thought I had 2.5leveling kit but according to bilstein I have 4inches. Now I had to ship them back. The wait is on again.
