1" shackle lift. You do not want to go any higher than that with shackles.

agreed dont go higher than a 1" shackle lift and dont go higher than a 1" body lift so you could do both and gain 2 inches that way

yea the stock shackles are 4 inches hole to hole so to gain 1 inch of lift you need 6 inches hole to hole
