So should I install a lift kit, and then install shackles if they're not at a desired angle?Extended shackles raise the truck half the added length, but don't fix worn out springs. It's a temporary fix to lift. If the springs are flat or near flat, get new springs. If the shackle angle is greater than 45*, get longer shackles.
If you want a lift, get new springs. Shackles are a band-aid and usually give you subpar shackle angles unless correcting for longer length springs.
Sorry If I sound like a moron, probably not hard to tell. Not to sure what I'm doing, just handy with tools.
