Default 1.5" Torsion Bar Crank and 2" Body lift

So i am thinking of doing a 1.5" Torsion bar Crank and 2" Body Lift...

I was wondering would that fit 30's or 235/85R15 without a lot of rubbing? My brother works at an auto wreckers so that stuff is everywhere :P

but what i am most confused about is if i crank the Torsion bars 1.5" what size shackles would i have to put in the back? people say that rear shackles only lift half the size of the shackle... so would that mean id need a 3" shackle?

If you wanted to lift the back 2", you need a shackle that is 4" longer that the stock one.

That's the lift I'm running, and I fit 31's easily and 32's with a lot of extra work and modifications. With that lift you should be able to fit 30's no problem.
