Thanks for the help.
For every 1" longer the shackle is, you end up with .5" lift, so use that to decide how tall you want it. The shackle angle will also get steeper the longer it is, if I remember correctly...

So I was thinking 1" lift. So i will make them 2"s longer. With the stretch, it lowered the jeep about 1.5" front and back. Should I use the boom shackles or just longer straight ones? What will give me more wheel travel?

This is as far as this project got, It has been parted out.
I really wish I could have finished it but I just don't have time and I bought a new daily driver/ trail rig, An 2006 Rubicon. I am now waiting on my 6" long arm and a few other parts. I will be starting a build thread for it soon.

That's too bad, it looked like it was really starting to shape up. Did you ever get to wheel it? Good luck with the new build, be sure to post a link.
