Default Stock rear shackles

How long are the stock rear shackles on a 2wd ranger? I have some longer ones that i want to install but im trying to figure out how much it will actually lift the rear. Any and all help is appreciated i would go out and just measure it but it has been constantly raining the last couple of days.

somewhere in the 5-6" range. you know a sure fire way to get the measurement? take a ruler outside to the truck you want to put the shackles on and measure them yourself. that's what we had to do before the internet.
