what is the shackle? basically a bracket to drop the mounting point for the springs down a couple inches?

i have been looking at the same shackle i believe. how much did it lift the front up? i see some around town that look like they are two inches higher in the front. just want mine level, maybe still alittle lower in the front.

Just make sure you use either a adjustable trac bar or a trac bar relocation bracket, as your axle will be 3/4" off center without one. The min spring pac by DR is the best way to level one out.
