Just thought that was interesting.

Brians correct.
the reason i cut mine was due to the location of my bracket for the traction bar. I kept my bars at the same height as the frame so they were not hanging down below the frame too far.

Bought set of 2 inch drop shackles for the van today. Blew out the back shocks so I ordered a set of those too. Probably put it all on and switch to the 265's for winter next weekend

Shackles won't fit the van. So much for everything on the net being true
So I'll put them on the truck, but...

I saw a post from nor cal nick about dropping the back of a CC/LB and needing shims because of the 2 piece driveshaft. Asked him for clarification but nothing yet. Anyone know for sure?

Have a pic of the oem shackle on the van James? For just a 2-3" shackle I wouldnt see you needing axle shims.

I didn't get a pic, and I just backed it in the garage won't see daylight till Tuesday. The thing looks the same as the truck, but on the van there's only 1/2" or less between the top of stock shackle and floor/body of the van. On the truck it looks like a few inches + of room between the top of stock shackle and bed of truck.

Maybe if I keep some weight in rear of van and lower rear psi I won't scrape. Or I could just move the overhead light that the van hits when backing in.

Edit. Or cut a hole in floor of van

Only other way I see leaving the stock shackles is to pull a leaf or overload if you havent already.

Dont notch the frame its not worth it! I wouldnt have bought my truck from Brian if it was C notched. DJM 3/5 kits are the best IMO. I want to 4 link mine with coil overs in the rear eventually or something cool...
