i just bought a 2.5" shackel leving kit for my '04, i was showing my dad and i noticed the price dropped from 50 bucks to 20 bucks plus shipping, he went ahead and bought em for me and if they dont work it was only about 30 bucks total wasted...
do you think they will level the truck in my sig? or was it just a waste of money?

I used the pro comp shackles in the front of my truck. I dont know that those shackles will give you the full 2.5" of lift, but you will definatly notice a difference.

Doesn't your truck have coils in the front and not leafs? Did you mean you bought a coil spacer to level the truck?

The ones i got were 2" lift shackles and it lifted the front 1.5". I already have a four inch lift but i was just trying to fix the front end sag as well.

33x12.50 is a guarantee 35's youd probly have some minor rubing, i did on my o6 f-350 with 2.5 skyjacker lift but it was easy to fix the rubbing situation

ebay, its just extended shackels, nothin major and it'll only work if you have front leafs. im lookin to buy some 20x9 diamo rims, im prob gonna run either 275s, 285s, or 305s, should i go with somethin different?

What other materials does it take to install these? Bushings? Or is installation as simple as pull the old ones and install the new?

I've got a set of F350 blocks sitting on the floor of my office. Installing those should get me another 2", and I think installing these shackles in the front should level it out quite nicely.

Does this sound like a good game plan for ~2" of lift?
