    would it be bad to add like a 2 inch spacer between the frame and the front shackle(or whatever it is called) on the front of the truck and make longer shackles for the rear of the front? (kinda condusing but maybe yall will understand?!?)

    I have seen a square tube that spans across the frame rails with the front mounts attached to it for a lift (3"sq. tube ?)
    I'm not sure if it is a good or bad thing though.
    Someone with more knowledge will have to chime in with some answers /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif

    What is it you are trying to acomplish??/ /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    Seems like a lot of work for adding maybe one inch of lift . I would suggest a body lift.

    You've got too much lift already. I run 38s on 6". I'm sure it could be done on 4". /forums/images/graemlins/hack.gif 7" is PLENTY!
