Shackle advice

Need some advice. Here's the situation I just finish installing a 2.5" lift on my '83 CJ7. I have been going back and forth over shackles. I already have a set of M.O.R.E. 3/4" lift shackles for my M38 project. I purchase these years ago with out realizing they where lift shackles. Long story!
Do not want to use on the M38 now but can not return.
Thought I might be able to use them on the 7. So I ordered up a set of M.O.R.E greaseable shackle bolts and bushings. I use the 3/4" shackle plates and the new bolts and bushings. The 7 looks very tall. A lot taller than I thought. My concern here is that these may be to long and cause handling issues. I will get some pic out tomorrow evening.

If I remember correctly, you shouldn't have any hanling problems at 1 inch or less.

I have daystar 1/2" on my 7 with 4" lift. Mine drives good once I got the steering straight.
