Re: What do u guys think?

didn't the lift come with new shackles?

if not, I'd put the stock back on, run it for a while, and see what you think...the spring lift may be enough.

If I were you I would not use the tall shackles. Those sound a little too long. But I also would not put the wimpy stock ones back on ether. Get some heavy duty ones, in maybe a .5 inch lift. I run those and I really like the beefy look. The stock shackels are not very strong. I have heard of them breaking.
