1995 Bronco rear shackel flip

Simply cutting off the old rivets and fliping the rear spring hanger over how many in. does it change the rear?

IIRC the shackle flip nets more then 3.5" of lft. Do a search over on FSB in the SAS section and you will find the answer. The axle does move 1-1.5" forward and most fix it with a zero rate block. Pinion angle rotates up also but everyone that I know that has done results in the pinion pointing directly at the case as needed. As long as the stock shaft is long enough and doesnt slip apart during full suspension flex you should be ok.
