leveling shackke mount?

i have a 2" leveling shackle, custom made with no instructions and my question is if it goes on the back or front of the springs. looks like it should be the back because of the frame support up front but i just wanna make sure. thank you.

It should go in the trash as you must lift both ends of the springs or you change castor! You will also shift your axle over unless you have a correctly made drop bracket or a adj track bar.

it dosnt look like you can add shackles to the front of the springs cause of the support brace, so add a spring is better, is that what you are saying. how much more stiff will the front end be then?

No you can get a complete new hanger kit from Icon, RCD and others that will work correctly. You can trash the brace..its not really a brace its the anti dive bar that is suposed to keep you from driving over little cars in a wreck.
Adding a add a leaf just makes the ride harder by increasing the spring rate.
You could have also used a mini spring pack..giving you 2"+ lift.
