They are actually rear leaf spring shackles, not shocks. And yes they will give the rear end lift 3/4" to 1 3/4".

Moved to the lifted suspension forum....

And as Jeff pointed out, they are shackles and they give your rear end a little lift.

Amazon has them for pretty cheap...

crank them torsion bars! i have my drivers side bar maxed out and the passenger side is cranked enough to be leveled with the drivers side. You'll need to crank the drivers side bar more than the passengers side because there is more weight on the drivers side which causes the famous "ranger lean". I only have 1 inch of rake....you can see it here in this pic


its nothing major really i don't mind the way it sits, i actually kinda like it haha
