4x Innovations is proud to offer this excellent shackle flip kit to increase your suspension travel. Toyota’s factory shackle mount is not setup to allow maximum flex at the shackle which limits the drop out flex of the rear axle on your Tacoma. This kit allows you to remove the factory shackle hanger and invert the shackle to allow for maximum flex and axle droop. A shackle flip makes a dramatic difference in the rear suspension travel. An added benefit to a shackle flip is the ability to install a longer shackle to add height to a suspension lift. You will get approximately 3/4″ of lift with the factory shackle.
To mount the kit you will remove the rivets holding the factory bracket and bolt on the new brackets with included grade 8 hardware. Our new universal shackle flip kit allows the flip bracket to be mounted in the stock location, and plus or minus 3/16″, 1/2″, 11/16″, or 1-3/16″. The factory shackle is then flipped and bolted to the new hanging bracket using the factory bolt.
