Boomerang Shackles

Been thinking of adding a 1" boomerang shackle to my exsisting 3" lift. Looking at T&T, JKS. Wondering from you guys running these if I will get a true 1" lift. I was told that might get only get a 1/2". I'm running stock leaves with a full length BDS AAL, only have 35,858 miles on the pack and they are in really good shape. Since I'm running an AAL should I get a standard shackle?Help me out.

Re: Boomerang Shackles

If they claim to be a 1" lift shackle then they are 2" longer than stock. You get half the lift out of the length of the shackle because you are only raising one end of the spring. I run the JKS shackles and they like all JKS stuff are made fantastic and worth the extra money.
