Lift Shackles

I am looking to fit some bigger tires onto my truck. I thought i would put Add-a-leafs on and tighten the T-bars to add clearance. But then i found out that Lift Shackles are used for the same purpose. I can not find any shackle to lift a Ranger but i heard that chevy 1500 lowering shackle could work as well Yea or Nah? if so exactly which part is it. There are 2,3,4" lowering shackles that i found. Will i need new hangers for the leaf springs? What about leaf springs? or would i be better of doing aal's. thnkx
