I saw a flip kit for the rear axle and i wondering what does this enhance or what kind of difference does it make, just curious, i know that it will lower the rear of my truck by abot 3.5 in. Any info would be great.

is it a u-bolt flip kit or a spring under kit? the u-bolt flip shouldnt lower it, only benefit i can think of is a lil more ground clearance since the bolts and the plate isnt hangin down bashing rocks.
spring under kit would lower a bit, i would think the diameter of the axle. as for benifits, just a guess... but maybe a better ride more flex maybe less axle wrap?? i dunno for sure...

That's usualy used for long travel setups and switching over to 62" springs., and long shackles... It alows them to user a longer leaf spring with out over lifting the truck - and to get alot more travel out of the rear with the longer spring.. It doesn't work good for rock crawling because it takes away ground clearence. Requires welding in a new front spring hanger also.
