    You really don't want to use a front shackle that is 2" longer than stock. The reason is that will change your caster angle and probably make it a mess to steer properly. I would only go with a 1/2" longer shackle like ORD sells but it will only give you a 1/4" of extra height. Me personally, i like the rear to sit a little higher than the front.

    No such thing, you sure they aren't one ton or a 14bSF and a d44?

    No such thing as said above. All D60 front are 1 ton and 8 lug, and a 14ff is also 8 lug but came in both a 3/4 ton and 1 ton. A D60 will have 4 bolts holding the steering arm on and also they only use 3 U-bolts and 2 5/8 x 11 bolts on the pumpkin side of the diff on the passenger side. If you look at the front cover and down to the lower right hand corner it should say D60F.
