Using shackles for rear lift. Any downside?

Thinking of putting 2-3 more inches on the front so I need the same on the rear and I already have blocks back there. So I was thinking of getting the height out of replacement shackles. Seems like a better idea than 4-5" blocks, which is probably not safe.

My real question is has anyone used a rear shackle fit on there Gen 3, and is there a disadvantage?

I used really long shackles on a Jeep years ago and it made the back end feel very "loose" as if it was floating side to side, but those were like 4 or 5 inches longer than stock.

I would get new leaf springs if I were in your position.
