BellTech 6400 rear shackles - Ranger

Just double checking before I order that these are the shackles (once flipped upside down) will lift my 2008 Ranger 4x4. I know some ppl have it I just don't want to buy it for nothing.

Awesome I should be ordering these soon.

It's weird how by just flipping the shackle on a totally different truck makes it go UP instead lol

On the Chevies (and a lot of fullsize trucks) the shackles mounts are under the leaf springs since they typically use a large and heavier curved spring. On the Rangers and most small/compact pickups the shackle mounts are over top and the shackles hang down. This way longer shackles give you lift vs. mounting the springs higher up from the shackle mount. A typical cheap 5" lift for most fullsize trucks involves flipping the shackle mounts so that the shackle hangs down instead.

I really should order a set myself as well. I have a set of bubba'd homemade lift shackles in mine and the bushings are toast in them. You can feel the ass end of the truck walk all over the place on the trails.. But it also makes it so loose it flexes like the girl your momma chased away!! LR
