shackle extentions?

at the local parts store i seen a kit that extends your leaf spring down from the shackle in return lifting the frame. They were about 1/4" thick and looked thicker than the stock mount. Just wondering if anyone had ever used these. They are also adjustable from 1 to 3 inches. I already have these installed at the 3" level with the torsion bars maxed. I'm prob. gonna bring it down an inch though and run 35's. Even now with the 33's it looks 100x better and way taller than morph's with just a body lift.

The durango's do fine, but mine are getting worn. It's about time for new tires I just need to come up with the money for some 35x12.50s15 buckshots and I'll be all set.

I've seen those spring mounts. You can get them for both the front and rear of the spring and get a measure of adjustability, and you can also put the front and back on different heights to fix pinion angle problems.

If you get crazy with them though, watch out for your driveshaft length. Mine is almost too short now.
