That's what I was thinking. If you want to lift it, you need to either put the axle under the leafs or get shackels (not sure if they have those on the 5 lugs) or get lift springs.

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

Well fellas I ended up putting shackles on the rear part of the leaf springs and ended up with about 4 inches of lift without effecting the front angle of my axel so I won't tare up u-joints, just gota clean it up a lil, cut of the unessasairy parts of the shackles I chop the exhaust after the hanger cause it was in the way of the leaf spring which them lower, definantly some redneck enjinuity lol rides stuff as a bored! Now suggestions on simple ways to bring the front end up bout 5 inches with out spending damn near 600$

your shocks look like they dont have any extension left...

did you replace them with shocks for lifted trucks or leave them stock?

I wouldn't trust those shackles but that's just me.

also you're pretty much out of luck on the front end as far as lifting it 5"
