Shackle Lift

So I wanna do a 1" shackle lift from BESRK. As seen here:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/JEEP-YJ-BOOM...item35bfc79923

Since it is only a 1" lift it will not throw off my angles to much right?
and
Dont I need grease able bolts? Where can I get them for this?
Btw I wont be installing these till next summer, I'm building a Christmas list and I will be installing a SYE at the same time.

You don't necessarily need greasable bolts. A 1" lift should be nice with 4" springs.

and

Where can I get them for this? regular bolts (grade 8) can be found at local hardware stores. Greaseable bolts can be had from quadratec.com

hope the above helps

Ok that answers my question. Do you all think the grease able bolts are worth the money?

I have them and I think they are worth it. Ive neglected them in the past and would hear pops when I would brake hard. I knew that I hadnt greased my bolts in a long time and the bushings were dry. After I greased them up, the noise when braking hard went away. I would assume that this noise would happen when off roading too but I never took it out with the bushings dry. If you want your leaf spring bushings to stay quiet and last a long time, buy the greasable bolts.

90% of the time they are misused and useless. if you want to make sure your bushings are working properly just pop them apart and grease them. grade 5 bolts are fine as well.
