Yep, shackles are nice and cheap and give you more clearence. You could just back down your t-bars but then you will need an alignment and you will have less clearence. It's really up to you.

eBay my friend.

WARNING: Once you start lifting your truck it gets addicting and you can't stop.

i bought mine from MaxxSuspension.com i beleive.. they are all one peice and really thick... nicely powdercoated even thought i ended up coating them in undercoat to match the rest of my underside. i'd highly recommend them. And to answer Moores12345, He is right.. its extremely addicting. i started with shackles and now im looking toward the same lift as Verno.. the 8" Diversified Creations Lift.
