it won't... shackles move your full droop lower, but not your fully compressed location, your best bet would be to make bump stops for your truck...

oh my truck, it's not so much what my fenders are doing to my tires, that i'm upset about, it's what my tires are doing to my fenders!

recently i have been picking my lines through things extra carefully, to make sure i don't fully flex out my truck... taking a swaybar end link off of the FRONT will help also, it will add more flex to the front, and less to the back... though the front doesn't flex much regardless...

my honest opinion to ANYONE running 33x12.5's on the newer body style, is MAKE/BUY CUSTOM BUMP STOPS FOR THE REAR!!!!!

when i get a chance to, i will be moving the shock mounts, and putting the blocks back in (which i assume your 09 didn't come with) without the blocks, the shackles may help a little... but more just give you more travel in the rear

The shackles lift the rear, so they will to some extent keep the tires from rubbing. Bumpstops are the proper answer however...

i put them on my truck and love the way it makes it ride, its so much smoother when the bed is empty! i did have problems with tailpipe clearance, but to solve them i just extended the pipe and shot it out under the bumper. no rub issues but im only running 30x9.50s.....

i bought mine from autozone, same thing just different name. spend 30 bucks! great for bringing the rear back to the height it use to be! can't say much for flex yet. i'll let ya know when i finish my chevy leaf swap.
Does anyone know the Autozone part number or anything??

Is this it?

thats the one, 13-4100. my store (auto vlaue) uses BEL4100 for their number, as long as its got the 4100 you should be good to go.

ok so i'm a bit confused ?
your saying Belltech 6400 are the exact same as the 4100

so bel6400 = bel4100?

i just want to be sure because i'm in Canada also "NB"
