Question ZR2 Shackles, lifting, torsion bar keys

Hey guys. First off, let me say...

PLEASE, IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A ZR2 BLAZER, DON'T OFFER ADVICE ON THIS.

Not trying to be ignorant, but I've seen far too many comments referring to questions from people who do not know anything about the factory differences. I am not interested in the opinion of "Doomsayers", who feel that I need to purchase a "proper lift kit" to "get a 3" lift on the stock suspension", or that you can't fit 31" tires on it without a lift kit, or any other such uninformed opinions. Sorry, but I've read far too much of such. The entire chassis geometry of a ZR2 is different from a regular LS or LT Blazer.

So, my questions are as follows.. I just found out my shackles need replacement, bad, and I was wondering if I can just add +2" shackles in their place, instead of the stock ones. Additionally, if I do, will I need the 2" shock extenders to go with them, or will they just fit without them? I want the extra height for towing (I only do trail Off-roading... nothing serious), and right now, she has about a 1.5-2" sag in the rear. Finally, if I'm not really going for additional front lift, is there any advantage to be gained by buying new torsion bar keys?

Thanks.
