ok, I've been searching on how to level the rear and just want to make sure I'm going about this the right way.
I called a few shops and they recommended shackles but the most I can drop with Shackles is from a 1/2 inch to a 1 1/2 inch, which is not enough I would think. From the measurements I made there is a 4 inch difference from the front so I'm thinking to play it safe, I need atleast a 3 1/2 total drop for the rear.
So, can I get away with just shackles or instead, should I use a Belltech rear Leaf Spring that's specified as a 3inch drop? Summit racing has a listing of #BEL-5988.
I'm ordering 22 inch wheels and I would like to level the rear to match the front first.

Brian aka slammed1 can get you setup on a rear level with no problems. You are gonna need new rear shocks dropping 3"s too though, or at the least some extenders. Try pming him or contact him here: http://slammed1.com/contact.html

I messaged him but I'm sure he's busy.

do you have a link for the extenders? I'm assuming it's droping the lower mount of the shock further down.
I think I'm opening a can of worms here, sounds like there's a million ways to do this.

I dont know of anywhere you can purchase them separately. They come as part of some companies drop kits. All I know is that when I put my Hotchkis leafs on first the ass end was lower than the front end. Its usually closer to a 3" drop in the rear that will just about level you out. Many accomplish this with short shackles out back and removing the overload spring.
