CJ stock shackle length??

Searched the forum but no one really has answered this one directly. I have a 78CJ5 where the PO put some after market shackles on it. I am about to redo suspension and want to end up with no more than an inch or so lift from shackles.

Would someone be willing to take a quick measure on your stock shackles and let us know the pin to pin length? Many thanks

As a side note, super lift or tough country? Leaning towards the super lift kits.
