quick question what shackle to run , soa with fortn wagoneer spring

i have a 95 yj soa and wagoneer front springs( 2" of wheel base stretch) what type of shackle should i run . i currently have a 1 1/4" lift shackle 6 1/4" from bolt hole to bolt hole in the front, i feel this is too much ( i had them lieing around so i used them) i was thinking of redrilling them an inch and a quarter shorter to give me a 5/8" lift or should i do it even shorter for a 3/8" lift. .

I like the smallest shackle in the front that I can get away with. Less sloppy steering, no pinion or caster issues, get it as close to stock as you can and run it.
