Lift Shackles & T-Bars

Can i get some pics from anyone, if anyone has it, all the lift is, is max t-bars with the chevy drop shackles.

I did not install my shackles and i can tell the *** end in lower, but not by much. So i just wanna see other who did those two mods, to compare to mine.

I want to order more shackles, but i dont want the rear to be sitting higher than the front.

Neither would give more clearance.. the axle will still sit the same as it was.. its only raising the body higher off the axle.

I just cranked till it was about even heres a picture fromt he side..the rear sits lower cause of the bed weight i have in the back. Better be ready to crank those t-bars a good deal if u put the shackles on to get it even. All i used was a tape measure and i measure from the center of the wheel to the bottom of the fender.
