Who's running a RC 4" lift with lift shackles

I have had this Rc 4" kit for a couple years now and was going to install some 1" lift shackles I made at work. But seems the shocks are too short

Anyone else have this problem?

Doesn't seem like my jeep weighs the shocks or springs down at all, when I lift
the Jeep by the front bumper there is no droop heh.

My Jeep came with a 4" SkyJacker (I think thats what it is based on the shocks anyway) and it rides pretty stiff too....
