Rear shackle bump

I just recently installed a Rusty's 6.5 lift. Now my shackles are hitting in the rear. Has anyone had this problem and how did you fix it?

Pics would be nice, what are they hitting in the rear and is this when driving or just sitting?

you need a dog-leg, boomerang, or just longer shackle. The same happened to me when I put in new springs from Fat Bobs.
Or relocation brackets

FYI if you dont fix it and load the springs up hard, you will bend the springs
