    You can use whatever shocks you can afford as long as they are the proper length. It's one of those deals where the more ya spend on shocks the better they are. You can't do a shackle flip on the front because they are already flipped. You could do longer shackles I suppose.....for every 1" of shackle length you get a half inch of lift. The shackle lift in the rear will give ya about 4". I would guess a flip in the rear and 2" springs in the front would almost come out level. Good luck!
