I would be happy to drop whole truck 2"
can this be achieved with shackles?

What is involved?

If your looking to do a whole 2 " drop then no shackels won't do it shackels will only lower the rear, and that would be a Harley exhaust,

As for truckpilot's exhaust. I believe it is Magnaflow 16616.

As for lowering. There is various kits out there.
2/4's and 3/5's .

But like Grant said. the shackles will only lower the back.
