Why Not? Ram 2500 / 3500 Lowering Shackles

We like to keep track of what our customers are requesting when we dont have that item available in our catalog, so that we can look towards what items to develop in the future. One of the items that is on repeat every week are lowering shackles for the 2500 and 3500 Dodge Ram trucks. So when we finally had a truck in here to do some R&D for our 4" Lift spindles, we took a look at the rear leaf spring setup.

Unfortunately, there's very little room to put a shorter shackle in that space you see highlighted, without it hitting the hanger. Since the hanger mount for the leaf spring is upside down on the Dodges compared to FORD/GM/NISSAN, a shorter than stock shackle is required to lower the vehicle. A new hanger/shackle combination would probably work, but that would probably turn into a couple hundred dollar solution, something to ponder...
