    turning 4\" lift into a 6\" lift

    a buddy of mine purchased a 4 inch lift for his k5, after installing it he was not satisfied and wished that he had gone for the 6 inch, is it okay to use the add-a-leafs to give him the extra 2 inches of lift that he wants? btw, he has 4 inch front springs and blocks in the rear.

    Have you considered bodylifting 2" ?
    If you want there is a photo-series on my CK5 page that also shows how you can raise the bumbers afterwards.
    Bodylifting is cheap, but they take time..

    Add-a-leafs may not give the full two inches. They are designed for use on stock spring packs that have less arch than 4" packs. You might want to consider posting an offer to trade a 4" for a 6", maybe someone will take you up on it. This could also be a good opportunity to do a shackle flip in back, then you only have to worry about getting front springs.
