longer rear shackles to be used as leveling kit

Has anybody used the rear shackles that can be found on ebay as a leveling kit i have seen them for anywhere from 50 to 100 dollars and just wondering if this is a good idea or if this could cause suspension and steering problems in the future

the only thing that you are going to have to look out for is the clearance between the top of the spring and the bottom of the bed. because to lower the truck you have to make the shackle longer. other than the clearance issue you shouldn't have any other issues to deal with.

this is for the front end actually they replace the rear shackle on the front spring in order to lift the front end

oh, whooops my bad. in that case the lift is so minimal that the geometry of the steering wont affected heavily. ive installed lifts before and when they wanted to get just a little higher we would get them into a set of longer shackles. after the install you are going to want to check the toe and straighten the steering wheel. 1/8 in toe in
