Default How To Gain 3in In Front?

I know Im going to put 3 inch blocks in the rear. But what for the front? I know I could get spindles, but those are to Much $$$. I know I could get the coil spacers. But the most I have seen are 2 inches. I really want 3 inches. Any Ideas that do not cost shit Loads of $$$.
Thanks.

Wait I I have a question. I searched double coil spacers and I found a video of a ford ranger with 2 coil spacers per shock. Do you guys think that is safe? So I would stack two 2 inch spacers for a total of 4 inchs lift on the front. Would it be impossible to align the front because the tie rod is to short?

do 98's do coil lifts? or is that older models? otherwise i would go with spindles, safest option, but also know your not suppose to run over 31" tires on spindles

yea but people run 32s with no issue. double coil spacers, not safe. and yes all 98+ trucks are the same. at least up to 05 as far as my knowledge, but the 06+ are probably the same or similar.

if he keeps the body lift he should be fine. check the wheel bearings at every oil change at least to make sure they're still tight
