From many posts, the measurements are generally every 2" of shackle gives 1" of lift.
Just measure the lenght of stock shackles
Center hole to center hole...that is stock height
Then add 4" to the shackle to give 2" of lift..

Also the hole for the shackle is abit larger than 1/2"..like 14mm

Smile Hope this helps

I got the ebay shackles and suprisingly they seem pretty sturdy. They're advertised as a 2'' lift so I'll have to see when I put them on. I did the measuring pics and Blazinator posted the comparison on a different thread.
