Just got around to installing my Mor Ryde pin hitch. At first I hooked it up lower so I'd have more bed clearance. Even at my stock 6", I had a few times when the bed touched the bottom of the nose. I've also watched it push on my underside light hard several times and worried it would get smashed or torn off. In any event it gave my closer to 8", which is awesome, and also helps avoid the hitch hitting my roll cover tracks on either side of the bed when turning sharp. However, it also raised the front of the Cyclone slightly without even leveling the truck's attitude with air. I lowered the Cyclone's springs last year to get it raised and level. It rode better that way too. This will reverse that again.
I'm wondering if I add Mor/Ryde shackles (CRE/3000 or the SRE/4000) down the road, will it again raise the trailer to compinsate for the new increased pin height? Did anyone gain height with the addition of the shackles? My shackles are maxed in the middle and have one more to go on the front and back hangers for what that's worth. They were off a hole from each other from the factory.
Also, the new pin height gives me 4 bolt per side rather than 5. I assume this is still fine.
