What's pictured is a rear flip kit....moves the axle to ABOVE the leaf spring. Gives 5" drop. a DJM 2/3 I understand have that flip kit and shackles to raise it up to give 3" rear drop.

Not a spring hangler flip.

thats a flip kit, but looking at this says it will lower it 5" so youll need a lifting shackle to get bac an inch or two..

I searched "hanger flip"

https://www.ranger-forums.com/forum2...inch-drop.html

Thread has alot of info for the cheap, almost free spring hanger flip.


Within that thread, there's a link to a how-to on RPS... http://www.rangerpowersports.com/for...d.php?t=218815

chevys are EXACTLY like that stock....

TONS of people flip their shackles on their rangers and drive them daily and put many many many many miles on them. What makes it not good on a DD??????

No, there's no kits. Unless you wanna lift the front using a spacer.

It won't. There's lots of room for it. Just only use the stock shackle.

Well yours might sit a little better than mine, But when I did it, the truck sat perfectly level, unless I put anything in it, then it seemed like it just squatting from there.
