Summit Racing sells them. I bought them in Tallmadge, Ohio in the Cleveland area. They cost about $65 bux....

Like Canadian said, look around, and you can find the instructions.


It's not too terrible.....a couple of pizzas, time, and a friend or two makes time fly on the job...

I used Belltech 6400 for the shackles for my T/S lift. Just google and look for the best price.

belltech 6400- They are chevy lowering shackles but they raise in our instance. The hardest part about the t/s lift is removing the rear hitch if you have one, needs to be removed for drivers side shackle bolt.

It's not really that bad, if you're mechanically inclined.

The time it takes is variable. Depends on if you have to remove the hitch. Shouldn't take more than an hour with the right tools.

The only thing thats a pain in the ass is if your bolts on a factory reese are heavily rusted other than that its the easiest mod that would put a smile on your face.

Blocks will LOWER the vehicle. The axle is over the spring pack on the 4x4 Durango.

Yes, we know. This guy has a Dakota, so shackles won't help him lift.

They won't give you any lift, on your Dak.

As stated, Durango springs are mounted underneath the axle. Whereas, they are on top of the axle on a Dak.

Your options are blocks, add-a-leaf, or possibly re-arched springs.
