I am still pondering shackles.

I like the anit-inversion shackles, but for a moderate wheeler, and alot of daily driving are they neccessary?

If I have 4" leaf springs SUA, would standard length shackles be correct or do I need to lengthen the shackles as well?

My frame is about to make its trip to the sandblaster for clean-up and paint and I need to make sure my suspension is in line.

With 4" leaf springs SUA what shim should I use to help with camber or caster?

Thanks

they probably arent nessecary at all. i have them on mine and they never once come even close to inversion. they are nice and look kool. if you got the dough why not. check my picks to see them. the lenght depends, i think stock would be fine, its more about the angle

if you want flex, you'll need longer shackles.
Because the lift springs have more bend in them, the difference in length between fully bent and straight is longer than a std spring, so a longer shackle is needed to allow the psring to move it's full travel.
