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.

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
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.
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.
