Default 2/4 lowering question

alright, so ill start with that i got

2004 ram 1500 slt
reg cab
2" mcgaugheys drop shackled with overload leaf spring removed(i think thats what the leaf is called, lol)

now, first question...
if i were to do a 2/4 or 2/4.5 lowering kit, would i need to put the factory shackles back on? im not sure what all is involved with the whole truck lowering kit so i wasnt sure

next question...
i see a 2/4 and a 2/4.5 lowering kit....whats the difference? the 2" drop shackles didnt drop it it 2 inches, so i dont know what outcome to expect out of any of these. and since i took out the leaf spring im not sure if thats gonna make a dif in the type of kit i get

last question...
i can do any work on the inside of a car, ive dabbled in body work, and the only exterior work ive done on a car is doing my drop shackles. how hard is it installing the 2/4 kit? im not sure im able to do it...i can bring the truck up to work, we have jack stands, air compressor with air wrenches, and probably any tool id need, im just not sure how hard it is

thanks guys. appreciate any and all help!
