Arrow Rear Shackle Question

I have a pair of downey shackles and I'm trying to find out how much of a lift they give my truck. Is there a way to tell?

Compare a stock one with the downy and measure the difference in length from eye to eye.

Each extra inch will give you a half inch of lift since you're only lifting one end of the leaf. They are most likely 1.5" or 2" lift. Stock should be 3.5" bolt to bolt, so your Downey's should be about 5-1/4" or so. What's the measurement?
