    Default Shackle Flip HELP

    I am trying to find a shackle flip kit for the rear of my 05 1500 silverado. I cannot find anything for my year model in a half ton . I am hoping that someone here has installed one on there 03-06 1500 and can tell me who makes it and/or where to find it. The closest I can find is ORD but their '67-up is for 2500-3500s. Thanks for the help guys, I know you will come through for me again...

    Here is a link to a rear flip kit for your 2005. It's about $200. Sorry it took awhile to respond but I did try looking last night and tried again tonight and finally found one. You're right, this is one tough kit to find.

    So why are you looking to drop your lifted truck?

    I am not wanting to drop my truck. I am looking for a shackle flip kit which will "flip" the rear leaf spring shackle mount to achieve around 4-5in of lift. 4 more inchs of lift will have my truck sitting with the factory stance (2in higher in the rear). That is what I want. Right now the rear is sitting 2in lower than the front.

    The site mentioned above is to relocate the springs below the axle. This isnt what I am looking for. I do appreciate the help finding a kit for me though. Just a little miscommunication i guess.
