Tow hitch + longer shackles = no good?

I have an 04 double cab and I just installed a Toyota tow hitch I want to get 1 or 2 inch longer shackles to add to my 3-leaf AAL(which only netted me 1 inch) to match the approx 3 inches I got in the front from my SAWs. I was looking and I know the 2 inch lift shackles are gonna be 4 inches longer than stock, and by the looks of it, if I stuff one side offroading, the shackles may hit the tow hitch bracket. Anyone have a similar setup? Is it anything to worry about?

i dont have any pics, but im running a Deaver 8 leaf pack with custom 8 inch shackles and while it looks like it would hit the tow hitch, it doesnt...

the leaf pack is not long enough to articulate the full length of the shackles...
