Im about to do a SAS on my truck and was wondering about putting shackle hangers, like youd get for the rear, on the front under the cab mounts instead of drilling thru the frame. It seems easier to do this and you would gain about 2 inches of lift. Does anybody see any problems with this?

Pinion angle would be terrible. Unless you made a very large drop hanger for the front to match, or a cut and turn, which would be harder than putting sleeves in the frame for shackles.

both of those would make truck too tall IMO.

But, I guess it all depends on what you want to use your truck for.

Have you noticed the trend towards lowriders with big tires? It works.

Isnt there a shackle hole jig being passed around the Pirate board for shipping cost only still? It started a long time ago, I havent seen it in awhile, might be worth checking into.

I didnt even think about the change on the pinion angle. I guess that shackle would need to be as short as possible too.
