    Moving the tie rod to the bottom of the spindle instead of the top. It gets rid of a lot of the nasty bumpsteer I got after I lowered the front end an extra inch. Unfortunately, the tapered bit that's required is $90 by itself. $90 for a tapered drill bit........ I still can't believe I paid $90 for a drill bit.

    But how much better did that $90 make it? Now you can charge others since you already have the bit haha

    That's a lot of cheddar, but it's going to look sooooo sick! Especially when you get those larger rims tucked in the fender wells.

    So could I only just do drop shackles? I want to be able to buy a part and take it to a shop and have them install it professionally.

    Yeah you can do just shackles. Not sure how much a shop would charge to do them, but they're not hard to install. Can do it with a few simple hand tools and a floor jack.

    For the price of shackels I wasn't happy with the 1.25" I got out of it. Imo

    I could see spending $45 on some cheap Ebay shackles for a minimal change, but I wouldn't personally spend more than that.
