Height Difference?

Hey,

Which would give my truck a taller stance, static:

- 6" Skyjacker Coils
- 4" RC Coils, with a 2" spacer

I want to get rid of the spacer, but am reading about the SJ coils giving less lift on extended cabs... How bad is it?

Thanks

depending on the stiffness of the 6 inch coil, the 4 inch and 2 inch spacer should give more... youre going to need a drop bracket for the TTB

yea thats what im asking - how stiff is the 6" skyjacker spring, in comparison?

to rephrase - ive got the 4" + spacer right now, and i am thinking to swap to 6" springs...

buddy of mine has the 6" Skyjacker kit on his 95 Ranger with Rancho 9000's on it. The ride is actually real soft on it, and he has the shocks set to the stiff setting
