    So I need some help making a decision on lifting my truck a hair more. Right now I just have a 2.25" spacer lift up front and nothing in back on 33" tires.
    It sits perfectly level but when I tow (which is a lot) it sags in the rear and drives me nuts. I am wanting to somehow fix this. I was thinking either some 1" shackles from Coachbuilder which is said to give me .625" of lift or air bags. I don't want blocks and I was thinking 2" shackles but I don't want the rear end sitting up a lot higher than the front. Any ideas??

    Not sure tongue weight. It's a 22' bay boat.

    Ahh ok.
    I wouldnt suggest shackles any longer than 1" over stock. The leaf springs on out truck are progressive and longer shackles means steeper shackle angle, which means more preloaded leaf pack. Not only that, the longer shackle will reduce your uptravel (unless you allow the pack to go negative, in which case you will send the leaf pack into early retirement. Airbags have their own trials and tribulations but can help your problem. Really just depends on what your main needs are.

    Definitely don't use shackles for your problem. Never liked shackles. Cheap "fix". ^^^^
    Air Bags aren't a bad idea for temporary load changes. You are towing a 22 ft? Dump the spacers. IMO. AAL? OK. Front?? $$$?
