it will give you about 4 inches with the stock shackles. i did it on my ramcharger, but i did a 6 inch drop on the shackle mounts and a like 8 inch shackle.
i plan on doing it to my 89 (or the 77 crew cab im looking into getting and swaping drive trains with my 89) and running 2 inch lift springs and the shackle flip. i dont see any disadvantages to towing.

i might do a load bag set up in the back too for heavier loads
