Default Belltech shackle and T-bar crank report/pics

I just thought I'd post up what I've done and the results. After reading on here for awhile, I decided to put on the Belltech 6400 shackles in order to get just about 3/4" to 1" of lift. I put them in the higher hole position in order to keep the lift at a minimum. I ended up with exactly 1" of lift at that setting. I've cranked the T-bars to a maximum of 2" up front. The truck now sits at, from the ground to the edge of the fender flare, at 37.0" up front and 38.25" in the rear.

I had a local shop put the shackles in. One of them came off easily, the other they had to torch off the upper bolt. I had sprayed PB Blaster on all of the threads about 4 times over the last two weeks to try to avoid that... The charge was only $100.00, including $12.25 for the new bolt. anyways, thats my report.

What luck ! I joined the forum trying to figure out exactly what you did. It looks better than I thought it would.

Thanks
