    It was a pretty simple mod. I choose not to cut the springs. The axle flip the same except we used car spring plates. I now need to remove the helper springs. As you can see the front is a little higher than the rear. I’m thinking of putting some shock springs to bring the rear up just a bit

        Just got an alignment last week. Drove it down to Tucson and tracked great. Only problem now is the steering. Installed the drag link backwards. Big FOOPA!!!.

        Axle flip in the back is nice and easy. Just need a new spring mount pad welded to the axle after you set the pinion angle. It is also a good idea to set the angle of the shocks different. I set mine to the same degree as a Dart.

          Can anybody point me to a set of drop shackles that are actually made for a 72-93 DODGE, and don't need to be modified, with the correct inner diameter and width bushings?
