Rear lift question on add a leaf

I already have belltech shackels and a procomp add a leaf but id like to raise it at least another inch or more, the front tbars can go up at least 1.5-2 more inchs so i just want it higher overall, can i put another add a leaf in the spring pack and run 2 on each side or is this bad for some reason? If anyone has dont it how much more would it lift the rear?

No just factory blocks with belltech 6400 and one procomp add a leaf on each spring pack. I think i have enough thread on the ubolts for another add a leaf but i dont want to have to get longers ones they are expensive.

I dont see why you couldnt add another leaf,you may not get the lift you want but you should get some.

They make a long and a short aal. Just make sure if you end up with a long and a short. You don't want to run two shorts or two longs. It will make it quite a bit stiffer in the rear too.
