I don't care about more lift, the extra droop doesn't quite sound worth the trouble but I want to use them if there is some benefit I can get from them.
Tobias? I don't understand. If you don't think you might customize your rear suspension to effectively use them... I would sell them. Your factory shackle is just as strong in it's factory design and almost all "off shelf" aftermarket rear spring set ups are designed for an inverted shackle.
I suggest you sell them and get a rear frame brace like Noah is planning and a set of Defined Greasable Shackles for your inverted set up.
The only benefit I can think of which might lead you to want to still install them would be if you are planning an HC rear bumper for your limo.
Then with the flip you would gain some departure angle vs. the stock inverted hanger.
My current set up runs pretty well but there is more room to improve. Future plans are the new Pelfreybilt shock hoop set up, custom length Alcan springs, and a longer resi style shock. Oh and since the shock hoop is set up for air bump stops I will add them too.
