chevy shackle on my ranger

i heard of some guys doing this but dont know that muck about it. i heard it lifts the rear about 1.5-2 inches. i rather put chevy shackles then putting blocks. 1) shackles or blocks? 2) if shackles, does anyone know where i can buy them or if i can get them in a junk yard from a chevy truck and how much will it cost me?

I got mine at a local auto parts store. They cost about 60 bucks.

EDIT: I'm talking about shackles. Don't go for blocks. Get shackles for sure.

I may be wrong about Motounpluged having some but someone had some for sell on here. You could also do a AAL. Which just adds another leaf and that is like 35 bucks.

^^^ why do you have one mounted backwards?

and go to pepboys. they have them for $38.99. jus bought a set and they are solid.

and dont listen to wat anyone says about getting shackles from pepboys. they are just as good as any other set. autozone is the one that sells the stupid cheap ones that are not good at all.
