question on front lift shackles?

I found a set of replacement shackles on ebay to level the front end. how hard are these on the rest of the front suspension and steering system

my dad put a 2" leveling kit in the front and you are baisically doing the same, he didnt change anything else he just put the springs. dont forget to re-aim your headlights though or other cars will constantly be brightlighting you

leveling kit shackles

These are not springs, the are shackles or spring hangers. they are supposed to replace the rear spring hangers on the front axle

you are doing the same thing. there is no difference in lifting with shakles, springs, or blocks. your still raising the frame 2 inches.
