98-up shackle flip

I'm trying to find info on a different manner of shackle flip. I know flipping the rear shackles will net you 2-3" of drop, and a flip kit will net you a full 5". I cannot remember where I read it, and I'm not finding it back at the moment, but I remember reading about flipping the front spring hangers as well. Does anybody know how much drop you get with front and rear hangers flipped?

you don't flip the fronts it will screw up your pinion angle, only flip the rears.

I figured it'd have an effect on the pinion angle, and that can be fixed with shims easy enough. Still trying to find the amount of drop that both flips would give.
