Lift with Shackle Question

Hey everyone got a quick question and need some opinions.

I have a 1.5 inch shackle lift and want to put a suspension lift on. I want a 4 inch lift total when done.

Is it better to put OEM shackles on with a 4 inch lift or get a 2.5 inch lift kit and leave the 1.5 inch lift shackles on for a total of 4 inches?

Sorry kinda confusing. lol

If you're going to wheel and plan to flex the 4" lift, stay with an upgraded shackle/aftermarket. Find something that is greasable and beefy...

ditch the lift shackles and get 4" suspension lift. lift shackles suck. i have them and im looking to get rid of them and go spring over axle on stock shackles. the ride quality is poor with them.
