i dont remember where i ordered my shackles from, but the cost was about 50$ or so and you can find the spring clamps at autozone and they were 10$ a set. But i dont think that every autozone has them so you might have to drive around a little to find them.

I like that look a lot...I was toying around with either lowering the rear or raising the front to make the truck level.

Only problem is that I am not certain how it would affect towing my trailer the 2 or 3 times a year that I do tow it.

DJM Shackles -

Will not drastically affect towing capabilities... although these combined with the spring clamps, there might be an issue with heavy trailers.
