have a 4" lift but want few more inches-shackles or mini pack

Ok i have a 4" procomp on my 99 250 reg cab. She is riding on some 36x13/16 tsl's. No rubbing but a little on my lower valance. When these tires are done i want to go with some 37's. The rear im just gonna block

So my question is for the front- 2" Shackle Kit or 1.5"-2" mini leaf?

Also if i do either of those what are the odds i will have to do something with my brake lines?

Also with the shackle kits- do those just replace the rear bracket on each side?

Black harley lts w/5k hids , blacked out tail lights w/leds,front & rear maghytec diff covers filled w/amsoil, 3" level kit w/ 3" rear block and 5100 bilsteins. 20" novakanes on 35 toyo mt's. kenwood touch screen w/amped kenwood door speakers w/ jl 10w3 subs, optima batts,ipr egr delete,5" sinister stainless exhaust,livewire ts w/egt probe,roof rack removed,mac air intake, blue spring mod, sinister clnt filter,clnt flush & filled w/elc

To do- make custom air box

You can not run mini-leafs on aftermarket lift spring.

It is also not as easy as throwing lift shackles at it. You need to make sure you have the supporting components to accommodate the additional lift. You are going to need an adjustable track bar, longer shocks and longer sway bar links to do this.

We carry all the parts that you would need, PM me if you would like more pricing on it all.
