1980-1997 F-250, F-350 Ford Front Shackle Reversal Drop Pit man Arm.

Many people have asked if a drop pit man is needed when installing a shackle reversal. I'm going to give some info to help you decide.

If you have an f-350, factory Dana 60 axle, and you install the 3 inch reversal using your stock worn out springs, I don't feel it necessary. The reason is, your not gaining 3 inch's of lift over stock, your compensation for old springs, probably only gaining 1.5 -2 inch of lift, some times less.

F-250 installing a reversal and Dana 60 80-97 axle. Yes and no. The f-250 has a shorter throw than the F-350, so to get full turning radius you need to either swap on the Factory F-350 arm or a drop arm. The determining factor is if you are using new F-350 springs, or refreshed as some springs shops term it, you should use the drop arm, which is only actually 2 inch's of drop over the f-250 arm, but longer to allow full steering. If using worn out springs, then switch to a stock F-350 arm.

Super duty leaf conversion ( FSRSD ). Yes, its a 4 inch lift.

Super duty axle leaf conversion. (FSRSDAL) Yes, its 4 inch's of lift.

5 inch Shackle reversal under anything. Yes, its a 5 inch lift, and if your adding it to other springs you need either our Ball Joint 60 cross over kit, or king pin 60 cross over steering kit depending on donor axle, not just a pit man arm.
