    Installed the 2" lowering shackles in the rear. For a simple 4 bolts on the shackles GM didn't make it easy to get them out.

    Removed the tow hitch:

    Removed 4 of the 6 bed hold down bolts, loosened the 2 front bolts to pivot.

    Removed the lower shackle bolt, then dropped jack lowering the frame. The leaf spring eyelet will contact the bed and lift the bed off the frame an inch or so to make the clearance in order to remove the upper shackle bolt over the frame:

    Install new shackle, slide in upper shackle bolt. Jack up the frame until the lower shackle lines up in the shackle perch, slide in lower shackle bolt. Put truck back on the ground and reinstall all hardware and tighten everything down.

    Looks good, but I never minded the rake on a truck.

    Been too cold to do much here lately (no heated garage) but this weekend I drove the dually around a bit and today I ordered new taillights for the suburban. The LED tails on their now are trying to fritz out on me so time to throw something else in there I guess. I'm hoping it warms up soon so I that I can finally wrap up getting the doors restored on the dually and move on to something else.
