Default Lift Question

I finally received my belted 6400 shackles; doetsch spindles; and will be doing my lift at this Nor Cal meet, Let me ask since this will only give me 3 inch total front and back, what could I do to gain another 3 inches front/back for a total of 6 inches?

I heard that I could buy some coil spacers 2 inch for the front and add 2 inch blocks for the rear or do a explorer leaf for the rear, what do you folks think, Need to make a decision for the is up coming meet so I can have everything I need. Thanks

p.s oh yea where would I buy 2 inch coil spacers? and where could I get the 2 inch blocks, I would rather do this than get a bodylift, unless I have too. thanks

oh yea almost forgot, I got the bilstein shocks for lifted rangers also, all 4 pair. I'm ready to sit like rstangboi from Davis my son gave up the truck and decided he wants something bigger, so I'm stuck with it

basically to answer your question, NO there isn't any other good way to gain 3 inches front and rear without an expensive lift kit, or a body lift and thats just basically it lol.

Default Re: Lift Question

nope, did some research, and I will have this done, a good board member from another form gave me this great info.

3" body lift from summit, 3" lift spindles (doestch) 2" spacers 2" shackles (belted 6400) 3" block and ubolt kit

Front would be spacer and spindle. Which is 5" rear is shackles and block for 5" and then a 3" body lift

You can get a pair from 4wheelparts.com and as for lift blocks, you can get a block and ubolt kit for roughly 30 bucks from autozone. As for alignment, And for a body lift, I just put a 3 inch body lift on and have a total of 8" of lift

Since you have coils, you can do a coil lift for another 2.5-3" lift up front, you will need to get new UCAs as well as the extreme angle from the new coils will wreak havoc on your ball joints.

that is why you get the new UCAs like I stated to avoid that happening.
