Shackle question

So I need to get just about 1 more inch to make things sit all level on my truck. I am wondering if these 1" shackles will do it. And if I need just the 2 or if I need 2 sets of 2? Thanks

I used some two inch ones on my Crew Cab. Got them on e-bay. Measure the gap from the top of the tire to the bottom of the fender opening. Compare back to front.

Here's where I got mine. $45: Ford Super Duty F250 F350 2" Front Lift Shackle Leveling Kit | eBay

Store: 1s152nv | eBay

Also, lift blocks: FORD SUPERDUTY F-250 F-350 1 INCH LIFT BLOCKS 1" BLOCK | eBay

I used 1" add a leaf and the added 1" shackels. You only need 1 shackle per side so 2 total. I got some great powder coated ones off Ebay for like $60 I think. I love em.

Forgot to mention a few things: One. losen the two bolts and one nut that hold the track bar mount to the frame so you can get the springs into shackles. Also, you may need to use either a small floor jack or bottle jack between the frame and rear of the spring to jack the spring down into the shackle.

Also, these are available too:

Sorry guys I should have been a little more specific. I have the add leaf packs the full leaf one and they brought it up 3" so it sits 1" higher in the front then the back. So I'm gonna put some f350 blocks in the rear which will bring the back up 2" and I want to put 1" shackles in the front so I can be level all the way around. But if I put 2" shackles on the front I would have to buy new shocks and I don't want to have to do that since I brand new motorcraft gas shocks on the front.
