Default Anyone Used Lowering Shackles..??

Hey guys! Just as the title says..I'm trying to get input/info on lowering shackles. I have a 2006 Dodge Ram Quad Cab Laramie 2WD.

I actually found these two items on this forum, but wanted to see if anyone on here has actually installed them on their truck.

My 2 concerns are what it will look like installed and how does it change the overall ride..? I don't know the exact difference in height, from front to rear, but I do know that the damn thing looks like a stink bug and that's retarded! If anyone has installed either of these and is willing to send me a picture of your truck (preferably on similar model as mine), I would greatly appreciate it!

Thanks in advance for taking the time to look this over and give your input!

Marc

I've got 1.5" lowering shackles on my silver 07 4x4. The ride is great with them installed, I don't regret buying them at all. Here are some pics:

It wont change the ride. The spring rate is the same and the shocks are still extended nearly full length. This is the easiest way to get up to 2" and retain ride and payload.
