Are shackles stock?

Hello, just wondering...but do Tacoma's come factory stock with shackle's on the rear? I have a 2003 Tacoma TRD that I recently bought, I was installing new rear shocks and noticed that the truck is equipped with shackles, is this stock or has the previous owner made this mod? Thanks!

Shackles are a standard component of any (certainly most) leaf spring suspensions.

There are shackles on 1st gens, but not the 2nd gens.

Are you suggesting that my truck does not have shackles at all? There's certainly something on the leaf spring mounts that I would refer to as a shackle....

I was wondering what is the best way to lift the back of my 2011 Tacoma since it appeared I can not use shackles........ I'm looking for 1 inch lift approximately but I don't want to negatively change the ride of the truck
