I recently put some 1.5' coil spacers in my previously lifted 88 supercab to try to get it aligned in front. That went well, all I need to do now is adjust the bushings some to bring the wheels up straight.
What I have now is the rear is significantly lower. It was before but now it's really ugly.
I've read that Beltech 6400 shackles will help correct this to some extent. I've also seen that there are some longer shackles available but I'm confused. I'm thinking I need more than 2" but I don't want to go to the extent of chev springs this is just the wood truck.
Any suggestions as to a good shackle to use?
Thanks
Rich

The BellTech 6400s are good shackles and should handle pretty much anything short of bashing them directly into rocks.

If you still need a little additional height, then maybe an add-a-leaf or swapping the stock block out for one that's an inch taller (I wouldn't suggest using shackles that are longer than the 6400s though).

Thank You. I have the Beltechs coming tomorrow. Hopefully this will go smoothly as my truck was a desert rat and has no rust.
