I got right around 2" with the shackle. The AAL will stiffen up the back just a little but like upther said is better for your spring life. SHackles will cause your springs to flatten out faster whereas the AAL actually boosts your payload a little.
Here's mine with a TT/Shackles for height judgement although the rear bumper is off and I was about to install my 3" BL the next day.
Okay well are there different brands in the aal that are better or worse cause I like to have the best of stuff even if that means I have to wait. And does anybody have a product # or can send me a link to what I need. And with the 3in. Body lift and aal and torsion bars cranked to 2in. Will 33's look to small on it cause I have read where some people have ram 35's with this set up so I don't want to make the 33's look to small
