1988 – 1998 Chevy C1500 6″ Rear leaf spring axle flip kit by DJM
This is where the flip kit came from, C1500’s were the truck to popularize the 6″ rear drop! Heres where you move that axle from below your leaf spring to sitting on top of your leaf spring for the express purpose of getting the maximum amount of drop! This is a lot of work, so your a serious enthusiast looking for a serious drop when you “flip axles”. On the 88 – 98 Chevy’s the frame is straight and when you flip you need to “C-section” the frame to get back some of the travel you lose because of the “flip”. Thats where the cutting and grinding comes in! DJM flip kits feature big thick frame reinforcements, axle brackets that allow you to set the pinion angle, shock extenders and a whole bunch of hardware.
You will need Calmax SuperShocks numbers 2000, and 2200 In case your wondering why 2 different shock part numbers in the rear? Your factory shock mounts are staggered, one in front and one behind the rear axle, since your going to the trouble to lower why not have the optimum length shock for each side.
