Help with 2.5" Lift

Hey everyone I have a 92 YJ with a 3" body lift and a 2.5" suspension lift and I was running 35's on it. I'm doing a frame off resto on it and while cutting the body bolts I ruined some of the body lift pucks. I'm gonna scrap the body lift altogether and was wondering if I just have the 2.5" suspension lift if I can run 33-12.50-15's or would I need to add a lil more lift (spring shackles). Also has anyone ever made lift shackles. It doesnt seem like to hard of a thing to do. I've seen some of the aftermarket ones out there and I'm sure I can weld better than some of the ones I've seen.
Thanks Guys

33'S will not fit with just a 2.5" lift. I have a 2.5" lift, 1" body lift, 1" lift shackles, and some fender trimming. I have 32's but have room for 33's.

Thats if you want to offroad it. If not. I'd think you could extend the bump stops and a 2.5" lift and 1" bl would clear.
