Front shackle suggestions
Looking to replace my front shackle as my jeep has a mild lean in the front. A while ago someone suggested a .5" shackle lift. I have heard of crabtree tool and die, any other suggestions or is he who to go with? Pics of the shackles on some cj's would be helpful.
You probably have a twisted frame or bent leaf springs. The leaf springs are easy to replace. Bent frame is more of a pita. Any aftermarket shackles are better than the originals. I have the warrior products lift shackles and love them. If you are considering lifting just one corner, I would urge you to reconsider fixing the actual issue.

Here's a few shots of my Crabtree shackles:
Not sure what's up with JF right now but it's saying my files are too big...did something change that I'm not aware about?
anyways, Here's a link to the photos:

To correct 1/2" you will need a 1" longer shackle. Having a 1" longer shackle on one side may be more visibly obvious than a 1/2" lean.
I would rather have a tool I don't need, than need a tool I don't have.
If the springs are knew they may level out once they settle in
