Who not use stock shackles and move the front hangar up or buy the drop hangars? That way your opinion angle will be great and just as low with factory shackles.

Nope, you are correct!

If you have any 5th wheel plate you'll get a slight crease like mine. I plan on heating it up with a Torch this weekend and smoothing it out. These are husky liners.

I would've liked to see you use a slider of some kind instead, but thats just me.

BTW, if you decide to change out the front hanger, make sure you find one that holds the spring from the top instead of from under the spring. That way you can still use Caltracs if you want to.
