AAL 3 pack shackle angle pic please?

After going back and forth about what to do to go from my PML to a full 3" SL, I think I've decided on the 3 leaf pack from AC. I know it will be stiffer, but I think a spring-over conversion will be too high, and the possible axle wrap worries me a bit, and I'd love to ditch the lift shackles and go back to the stock length since they hang so freakin low.

The only thing that worries me is the shackle angle after you put the AAL on. I've looked around but can't find a nice direct pic of the angle, only a few that make the shackle angle look really nasty, so it worries me a bit.

Can someone give me a nice pic of a rear end....with the 3pack and stock shackles?

Thanks!

What do you mean "hang so freakin low"? For pics of a 3 pack AAL and OEM shackles take a look through Mirage's build.

I had a look in Mirage's thread but there isn't any close up pictures of the rear shackle angle. I find that AC's PML shackles hang way lower than the stock ones(obviously) so I'm dragging them on rocks much more than I would with stock length.

Bump. Can anyone snap a pic of your rear shackle angle if you have stock shackles and the AC 3-pack AAL? Please? don't need quality so phone pics will do.

Thanks!
