    Hi i have an 03 4x4 SR5 that i recently put in 3'' spacers in the ront IFS and got AALs for the rear. I noticed the Rear was lower than teh front which is understandable because i still have the stock leaf pack. I wanted to get a 1'' shackle lift for the rear leafs to make up for the sagging and to accomodate the 33s I want to get shortly. If anyone has any suggestions or feedback on what would be a good buy as far as shackles go id really appretiate it. thanks.

    with a 3" front, you will want 1.75" in rear to keep the truck even...

    if you already have AAL, you may be at 1.25" to 1.5" so adding a shackle lift would set you up to 2.25" to 2.5"

    your truck would end up sitting like a hot rod...

    how long ago did you put the front lift? what kinda lift was it?

    your front coils may need to re-settle after install...

    its a revtek spacer in the frontand i put it in maybe 2 months ago. it was supposed to be a 2.5'' in the back which doesnt seem too far off but you can tell the back is a little lower.
