Default Shackles

Hey I just want to clear up a few things that I am having a hard time understanding. Everyone keeps saying that rear shackles will give you some lift but everything i read about them on summit and other performance web sites say that they lower the riding height of the rear of the truck? I really know nothing about shackles. Im a mustang man getting into trucks now and am looking to get a 3 inch body lift but the other day i noticed that my leaf spring mounts are completely rusted through so i need to replace those first. Should i get shackles for it while i have to replace the mounts? If you could let me know what shackles really will do for me i would really appreciate it. Thanks guys,
KYLE

Check it: Here is the chevy lowering schakle installed on my truck to raise it ~.75inch. THe chevy schakle points the other way, thus lowering it.
