Not entirely sure on my lift....
 
So i have a few pics i took of my front springs tonight. I was wondering if anyone could tell me how much lift it is and what i can do to get a little more?
I forgot to take pics of the rear but it has 2 stacked blocks.

I was originally told it was a 4 inch or so the kid thought. Is that like a 4 inch lift spring and then a 1 inch coil spacer under it or something?

Looks that way. Also looks like the springs have quite a bit of bow in them. Or is it just the photos?

So i was on the ranger station earlier and found this article about swaping in 6 inch coils and getting rid of the 4 inch coils and coil spacer. at that point i can use the bottom hole on the front lifht bracket instead of the top one. Is there anything else I would really have to do or change ya think or can i just do the swap and basically be good to go?

As in 2 lift blocks stacked on top of each other? IF so one it dangerous 2. some states (i think all) its illegal

I know stacked blocks are a very bad thing. But it is what was on the truck when i bought it and I have not changed it yet.
