DJM lift shackles

My truck is currently dropped with a djm 2/3 kit. The rear has a flip kit for a 5" drop and djm lift shackles for 2" lift.

I am going to be lifting my truck here soon, i already bought the 3" spindles. My question is if i unflip the axle, can i leave the djm lift shackles in instead of buying the chevy lowering shackles?

I see a ton of people run the chevy lowering shackles, just wondering why i've never seen anyone run the djm lift shackles that are made for our trucks?

Thanks guys

hey, i think i reconize your name from RPS, you have the orange ranger?

yes a Djm lifting shackle from the 3inch flip kit will work, reason people use the Chevy lowering shackle is they can be found all over the place for cheap, and DJM doesnt advertise their shackle seperately, so its not as common

yeah i have been on RPS for years, just came over here. It seems like RPS is more for lowered trucks and R-F is more lifted. I thought i had just bought the lift shackles themselves, but i guess i bought them with the flip kit. It all makes sense now.
I'll prob just buy the chevy lowering shackles, that way it will be easier to sell my whole 2/3 kit.

BTW if anyone is interested in my drop lemme know.
