Rough Country 4.5"

So I puchased a 4.5" Rough Country Lift for my XJ. The company I bought it from initially sent me the add a leaf kit instead. After talking to their customer service they sent me the rear leafs and told me to keep the add a leaf and shackles. Does anyone know if the shackles will fit with the 4.5" lift springs. If not is anybody interested in buying the add a leaf and shackles off of me?

Shackles should fit.
If you dont want them, how much are you looking for the shackles?

They will work, you will just get a little more lift in the back, 1 or 2 inches depending which hole you use.
