adding shackles and spacers to a lift

If I add 3/4 in the front and 1" in the rear with spacers and shackles would I really need new shocks? I hope noooot

Its a possibility. You'll most likely just have to wait and see. My guess would be yes. I had a 1 1/2" lift from the shackles on my YJ and I needed longer shocks.
