Rear Shakel Lift

i was out working on my truck. and loked up and seen the front shackle bracket. all of a sudden a light whent off. no i did no see God or bump my head. i just had a thought. why couldnt i get two of them and mount them on the rear for a schakle lift. I have been to a lote of sites looking at the ones every one is making. and its the same idea as theres. and wont cost me 200 or more. well help help me out here if im wronge. ?? has any body else done this. ?? how much of a lift would it give me. ?? zzzzzzzzzzzzzzdose the thearoy sound good.

If it has tits or tires it will give you trouble.

Re: Rear Shakel Lift

It won't work for 1 simple reason. The rear shackles on GMs are tension, not compression shackles. Longer shackles would lower your truck, not lift it. That is, unless you've done a shackle flip...
