Default HELP! need to lift rear 1-2 inches after flip kit

Ordered and installed a djm 5 inch flip kit, and my tires just barely rub. I put weak nissan hardbody shocks on, and it is bouncy and wayyy too low. My tires rub just a little. I was wondering how i could get one to two inches of lift out of the rear. Would stiffer/longer shocks help any? thanks.

Get Belltech 6400 shackles they will lift the rear 1-2" depending on the hole you use

used some shackles, works great, got the perfect height. Now im experiencing some drive shaft vibration at about 62 mph. Must be my pinion angle right? how to i correct this? I put in some home made pinion shims to get rid of any other vibrations, which worked, but now all i am left with is the high speed one.

another option would have been to take the flip kit off, and flip the rear hangers.
