I would like to see some pics of the rear reverse shackle kit installed and know if it will clear my exhaust pipe. The reverse shackle will lower the springs from it original position and I'm wondering if it will interfere with my exhaust pipe exiting my truck.

Thanks

That depends on your exhaust system... I have a PMF shackle flip. and my Home built exhaust had to be lengthened.

Exhaust before


Spring installed but not bolted to the axle yet


After ( I hadn't made the relocation plate yet so my wheel is too far forward)


I had to loosen the exhaust just to be able to install the springs... I've since reinstalled it correctly.

I did the PMF 4.5" shackle flip + superlift 5" and removed the factory lift block so 4.5+5 = 9.5.... Factory lift block is 3", so 9.5-3= 6.5" of lift. I like the stance.
