    I know theres a millon ways to add more lift to a truck (blocks, lowering the shackles, zero rates, bodylifts) but what about if you only have a 6in all spring lift and no body lift? Is there anyways to make it a 4in lift with out buying new springs? /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    You can take one or two of the leaves out of the spring pack. I've heard of folks doing this...I never have though.

    Really depends on how difficult you want to make it. You can take out the leaves or you can weld some mounts under the axle, fab some plates and go spring under like a jeep. I would just sell your lift and buy a new one that is four inches......or just trade like someone else posted. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Take a leaf out. It will make it flexier too.
