Everyone uses the Belltech 6400 chevy lowering shackles to lift their Ranger rear end.

best thing to see is if they are longer, if they are you may get a bit out of it.

Those are the same length as your stock shackles, they wouldn't do anything.

Are you looking to lift or lower?

Seems like a waste of time. They look just like our stock shackles. Plus the Belltechs lower the chevy 2inches, and when you put them on our truck, it lifts them like 2inches (maybe a little less). So stock shackles are going to be almost the same.

Having a quad in the back will lower it.
