Rears front and high steer
« on: Dec 30, 2008, 04:47:46 PM »
-I know this has been discussed but I want to know what is the minimum needed to put rears in front. New hanger Y/N? What Shackles if I don't run a hanger? Will boomerang shackles create less lift?
-Can I run hi-steer without a new front hanger? Flat pitman?

 :help:

I just did rears up front and I didn't use a new hanger, I did get some 4.5" marlin shackles. Dont know about the boomerang question... I also got hi steer without the hanger. It looks like Im gonna need a flat pitman arm or my leaves are gonna make contact with the tierod end.

If you are IFS then:
Complete front axle (minus torque rod mount)
Front Hanger
5"+ shackles (if boom measure distance between the holes)
U-Bolt Flip Kit
High Steer Kit
Rotated steering box or flat pitman arm or 3/4" drop pitman arm (may need to ditch the pin in shaft)
Extend front driveshaft (or square it)
New Shock hangers/mounts

My main question now, will banana shackles create less lift than straight?

the boomerang shackles are the same as all the other shackles. the measurement from eye to eye that is. the only thing that changes is the shape. the banana shape is ment for clearing the body mounts. so if you measure your boom shackles eye to eye and they are 5", a 5" normal shackle will do the same exact thing
