would it be a bad idea? i got shackles but i think the extra inch would make it look alot better. does it effect the ride?

No it will not change the ride at all, all you need is shorter U-Bolts to do it as you will run out of threads on the stockers.

Yeah, I took mine out and didn't need new ones.

Be sure you have a lot of patience or some air tools and deep sockets.

This was awhile back when I had 3" put back.

The 5" kit consists of a flip kit and a lift hanger for the shackle.
