Product Description

Sky Manufacturing second generation front Ford F-350 shackle reversal. This kit provides much better ride than stock by eliminating the weak front shackle bushing, and by moving the shackle to the rear of the leaf spring like it should be as to deflect impacts of harsh road driving.

Kit available in 3 or 5 inch lift. We recommend new longer/better shocks to compliment this lift. If you would like to get carried away, we also can provide a drop pitman arm and new braided brake lines, though not needed.

The new generation front hanger kit also allows to fit an intercooler in the front cavity of the truck, as the ears of the hanger that sit on the inside of the frame are now formed to eliminate spacers previously used. All parts are laser cut, cnc formed, tig welded. Primary hanger is .250 steel, shackles and pan hard drop are 3/8ths steel.

Kit includes all needed hardware, bushings, and instructions. F-250 will require minor front frame horn modification to fit on some vehicles. If you are using a TTB front axle you will need to fab or buy drop brackets. If trying to fit this kit to older 88-91 trucks, front frame modifications will be needed.

*******This kit is for 1992-1997 monobeam axle trucks only*******
