Thanks!

Remember that the shackles lift the rear 1/2 the total increase in the length of the shackle. To lift the rear 3" you would have to use a shackle 6" longer than stock and thats a LONG shackle! Also, you would definitely need driveline angle correction.

Generally, shackle lifts are not used for that much lift.

I did and they look plenty cool, mon!

Do you know anyone with a Ranger who's using them, and what did they do for shocks, if you happen to know?

I think I'm at my shock limit now, actually.
