I wouldn't care what shackles I had stock or otherwise, I'd run a trackbar IMO its necessary it counters against steering forces.

Ok cool thank u bc I have the adjustable drop bracket. I was told just to loosen the nut from bracket and just let the weight of the truck find center and then tighten bolt . Its like a cam on both sides of bracket. Is that the right way to find center?
