    the front shackles are already inverted like your talking about for hte rear end. its a bad idea to lift the front TOO much with shackles imo. the shackles are toward the rear of the springs if you didnt know.

    longer shackles you hurts your front axle pinion angle as well if you arent running lifted springs, and even still they can be over done.
