Yeah shackles dont look to great, check with some of the companies that make a 2.5 inch full kit normally aroung $300 but you might as well do a 4inch for alittle bit more cash, if you dont now you will later.

Moa is correct the stated size over stock shackles will only give you 1/2 of that in actual lift.

Thanks all. The best way I see it (from all of your suggestions) is to do the job right with a lift kit.

NO SHACKLES...
