Quick question! Additional lift?!?!?!?!

I want to go higher.

What I have:
3'' Lift Spindles
3'' AALs

What I want to get:

3'' Lift Coils
6'' Lift Shocks

What I have to add already:
3'' Aluminum Blocks

...ok. So.. will the Coils and the Blocks make that big of a difference? Will the coils even lift it higher? Fack!

i ran the fabtech 2.5 performance lift with a 3inch spindle, making a 5inch suspension lift

and then had a 3inch body lift ontop of it

remember, in the front, its only a 3inch lift shock needed, since the spindles dont change the shock length


also, not sure what motor you had, but with my 4banger, the coils were way to stiff and it rode like hell

^ I have the v6 3.0. I bought 3inch lift shocks to accommodate the Spindle Lift and the AALs in the rear. I'm only assuming that putting the blocks in the rear will raise it higher to the already maxed 3inch lift shocks. Same for the front... Correct me if I'm wrong.

If I was you I wouldn't put 3" lift blocks. Blocks are really not what you want to have for lift. Try some shackels and maybe a 1" lift block

I've heard of shackles but have no experience in them. If I were to get them, I've heard that I may as well just replace my whole rear leaf "system" (since it's a 98) when I do it. Correct me if I'm wrong? PLEASE? Also, are they usually a reasonable price? Off to work I go... *Whistles*
