One of the easiest ways to lift the rear suspension on a mini/mid size truck is using our 2 inch lift shackles. These stout 3/8 inch steel plate shackles are easily installed, providing the lift and performance demanded by off roaders.
I had a very very very stiff leaf spring replacement for a 4 inch lift and the original shackle's length just wasn't long enough to make the Spring leaf connection. This 2" shackle made it a perfect fit. I recommend it if you have any trouble with stiff new spring leafs. Also the shackle is very heavy duty. I haven't really used it yet but I can tell that it will stand-up to the off road beating.
