Default 3/4 Lowering with 20"s

Hey I am about to order the DJM 3/4 lowering kit but i am wondering will the tire be rubbing sense i have 20"S ( 235/35zr20) and i have already had the back lowered with the shuckles to be even with the front.

I am also wondering will my Stock shocks be fine with a 3/4

no you will need new shocks, only 235 35 R20? 235 seems pretty skinny for a 20, i would at least go with a 255-265, unless it wont fit without rubbing

Could i remove the shuckles? I am not even 100% sure if it is done with shuckles or not. All i know is that the back got lowered to be even with the factory front heigh.. I dont think i need a c-notch because the rear has not been flipped.
Here is a few pictures of my truck

With the shackle flip out back, adding the flip kit will yield you 6" of rear drop. You're gonna want to flip your hangers back to stock before doing the flip kit or you'll be dragging ass, major.

Yeah, I am going to take it to a shop and probably let them do it. So i will tell them they need to be flip back to stock. Is it hard flipping it back to stock?

In the picture i posted with the 3/4 kit will my tire be real close to my frame or will i still have that gap that it has now?

Well a shop probably won't know what to do with a flipped shackle. Your best bet is to flip them back yourself then just take the 3/4 kit to your shop and have them install that.
