schnutzy if it is a 4 inch lift, you could add a 1 inch lift shackle and a 1 inch body lift if you didnt want to go with new 4 inch springs.

RedWrangler a 1.5" shackle lift will only get you 3/4" as it only lifts one side of the spring. There's a reason why jeepers refer to the long shackles as the horns of death.

RedWrangler NO, there's no safe way, probably no way at all to get that with shackles. Check out the lift sticky at the top of the forum, and you'll get all the lift info you need to decide what's best to fit your needs/wants/budget.
