The shackles alone won't give you the same... but shackles and and AAL will.

2" chev drop shackle + short AAL netted me 3" of lift. The same amount that the Superlift stacked block BS would've gave. That's actually my setup because I sure as hell didn't wanna stack blocks: stock 2.5" block, procomp short universal AAL, belltech 6400's on the bottom hole. Truck sits dead level.

As everyone else suggested - definitely use the shackles - they improve your flex, and give a nice comfortable ride! The more blocks you put down under your leafs above your axle, the more axle wrap you get - Guarenteed it isnt too noticeable with our small trucks, if you pop it into gear and hit the gas when towing or scooting up a steep incline, your axle will roll a bit in a stomach sickening manner =)
