    Ok so im gonna get Bilstien 5100s for the front of my truck, and i was looking at a rear 1.5" AAL or a 1"-2" lift Shackle. I was wondering would the Lift shackle ride better than the AAL???

    What do you mean by lift bracket?? Do you mean a longer shackle?
    Most people do an aal and are very happy with them. There are even a couple option on AALs.

    A shackle will basically keep the same ride you have now. A single aal kit will typically stiffen up the ride a little. And a 3 leaf AAL kit will turn your factory pack into a progressive off-road style of pack (rides really nice, but can't handle as much weight).

    Would it still be able to handle hauling a four-wheeler on a trailer with the progressive pack??

    For a quad on a trailer they should work just fine. You do not need extended front brakelines. But a extended rear is recommended.
