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.
Why does everyone think prerunners just jump stuff?
