I would advise staying away any lift that includes lifting the rear with shackles.

A rear shackle lift will cause the rear axle to have bad geometry and will also cause the axle to no longer be centered with the wheel wells.

Fabtech and many other suspension companies make lifts for your truck that will not cause poor suspension geometry.

You get what you pay for. Doing it right will cost you more than twice the amount than the first suggested lift kit.

But you will not be back on this forum complaining about your lift.

However it is your truck your project, what you will be happy with and accept may be much different than what I would want on my truck.

In the end you will be stuck with consequences of the modifications you choose to do.

Here is just one link of many where a shackle lift along with a rear spring lift that was not designed for the truck was used then later was regretted.

Rear axle not centered in wheel well
