Question UCA vs Shackles

Hi,
I have Bilstein 6112s and 5160s set at the highest setting. I want to continue improving the ride of my truck. Which would help the most new UCAs or shackles? Am I even comparing apples to apples? Thanks in advance.

Truck is 2008 DC with an ARE shell.

Thanks
TB

I'm no expert but seems you are comparing Apple's to oranges. Shackles will improve ride somewhat. Ucas will change nothing except allow for a better alignment.

Most of the time if you'll hear UCA's improving the ride, it's normally people talking about an aftermarket suspension kit that requires UCA's, such as KING, FOX, etc. extended travel coilovers.

Shackles are for the rear leaf springs. UCA's are part of the front IFS set up.
