i have 38.5's with a 8 inch lift (see signature pic) and just went up to 10 inches. i thought about the shakle thing but just didnt care for it. i did 2.5 front level and 4 inch procomp block in place of stock 2 inch f250 block. it is niiiiiiice man, i do not know why in the heck i waited this long to do it. the truck sits exactly level front to rear b/c before it was 1/2 taller in rear, so the extra half in front made up for it, i will make a thread tomorrow if its purdy outside. i just need to lengthen my panhard bar.

if i were you, since you have the 2 inch spacer up front, just order a 8 inch coil from top gun customz and that will give you ten up front. in the rear just remove whatever top block you are running and order one to give 10 in the rear. longer u bolts i got made local for 10$ a piece and there ya go. just make sure you get longer shocks, id consider bilstein 5150's they are so smooth, 14 inch travel as well.

i did not have to adjust any brake lines, my drop brackets with the 8 inch lift i have give me more than enough slack in my lines. I see you have a 6 inch lift and added two inches to give you 8. i would see to think that if you look at the slack in the lines on your truck now, that is what i have on mine since i only went up 2 inches from 8 to 10. but obviously you going 4 inches over your lift(being a 6 inch to start) that you will need to figure something out?? the second part of your question is in my 8 inch fabtech lift it was add a leaf and a larger bottom block...hope this helps you?
