Default Superior Automotive Lowering Shackles

I am trying to figure out what the diffrence is between the rear suspension on a 2001 Ram 1500 and the 2008 Ram 1500. I have the shackles made by Superior Automotive P/N 13-4100 the year range states 1994 - 2001 but everyone at Pepboys stated that they would fit correctly. Please help me with this.

Well, I did some research and found that those guys at Pepboys know nothing about the suspension on the Dodge Ram. While the springs didn't change in width they did change in length and mounting design. The 94 - 01 Ram has the rear spring mount under the leaf spring and the 02 - 08 the rear spring mount is on top of the leaf spring. So, I just ordered a set of shackles from DJM, P/N DJM-SH1092 2" drop shackles. Next time I will trust my instincts and ignore the pepboys guy.
