sky font shackle reverse kit

has anybody ever done this kit on their obs i have a f250 4x4 i want to do the 5 inch lift. but the website says it only works with the monobeam axle im guessing thats the dana 60 i have the stock ifs front axle. i am wondering if this would work on the ifs axle and why it only says monobeam axle. i am going to get a dana 60 soon but i have to pull it out of the truck my self and the guy said i cant get it till next march cuz the truck is in the bushes and he is going through a divorce. and if it has been done does anybody know how hard it is to do?

thanks,
cam

You need the dana 60 solid axle for the RSK to work.

Save your money and buy Precision Metal Fabs. Better and cheaper

Re: sky font shackle reverse kit

ok i will look at precision metal fabs and why do i need the dana 60 is it because of the the movement of the axle?, and the ifs trying to keep both wheels to always have contact with the ground? unlike a straight axle?

You can't use the TTB(IFS) setup because of how they articulate. You would need drop down brackets where the axles attach on the cross member. It isn't worth putting money into the TTB setup when the D60 is far superior in every way.

Re: sky font shackle reverse kit

Ok I will have to wait till march then the only reason is that the Dana 60 I am getting is only 300 bucks and its out of a 95 f350 but it has dual rear wheels so I have to get different hubs to get it back to srw right.

Just use the hubs off your D50 TTB

NOPE. The spindles are different, but The hubs are the same between a D50 and a D60
