Stack Leveling Kits

I was looking and couldnt find an answer. If you stack a coil spacer with a axle perch spacer would else would you need to replace besides shocks?

The entire front clip of your truck after you hit the brakes hard and the axle falls out Why not just do it right and buy the correct lift?

Actually ready lift sells drop brackets with a 1" perch spacer.They say you can use this along with their 2.5" spacer kit to give you a total of 3.5" of lift.The kit is like 329.00,so its not cheap.So I don't see how you would lose your axle.You can also use a 1" spacer with with the icon level kit also with no problems so I read....

It just seems like a lot of spacer to me - especially since the springs in our trucks are not captured. Brings me back to seeing guys stack blocks (or even use them in the first place...) in the front of a leaf-sprung truck; its just bad practice IMHO.

Actually havig the axle fall out was more of a joke though

You mean those 6in blocks under my ole leaf spring f250 is a bad thing...what about the hockey pucks I wasn't for a 12in body lift? Hahaha...I really haven't done either of these.

I think you would have to add an adjustable track bar
