    OK,its a 79 d-300. upper and lower control arms. the shocks go through the coil springs. what can be done to lift it some shy of spindles(i dought they even make e;m for that year).??my friend asked me and i can;t think of anything except those helper coils you bolt outside the shocks. he doesn't think they will fit. any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks gentlemanst:D

    daystar makes a spring spacer that you put between the coil spring and the frame. it would probably throw the alignment off though. also would need longer shocks.
