Exclamation 5 inch flip installed with pics

Hello everyone. Got a few pics of my 5 inch rear flip kit post install. Not happy with it. Trying to get a hold of Belltech. Drop is more than 5.Pics show the rear real low and the front is now higher.Im not sure if the right shackles came with it. The pics are with the helper spring in the flip kit.Its bottoming out on the frame with or without the stops. Not sure what to do?????????????????????????????????

Yeah...that doesn't look right. Did you take a "before" and "after" measurement?

yeah, a flip alone is 6.5- 7", not 5" as most advertise. I measured before and after, mine was dead on 7".
Get some 2" lifting shackles for $60 off ebay and be done w/ it, btw you just about HAVE to notch the frame. a few get away w/o it, but most have to cut.

Hey guys. A buddy of mine did it for me while i was away. Hes a class a mech. He said everything fit well and went together well.I took it home and herd some banging over bumps. Took the stops off for more clearence to see if it would stop but it didnt. Now.............i di not change the shocks. Could this be the banging? When i took the stops off it didnt appear to be marked. Im puzzled. I have included before and after pics.
