Have a 6" (I think) lift, want 8"

I think I have a 6" lift on my '05 f350 but am looking for 2" more to clear my tires better.
I have 37"x14" Nittos on a 18x12 rim and it rubs at full lock and while turning going over a large bump./

What's the best option/cost effective? I would prefer to not buy a new track bar or springs, but I do need new shocks sooner or later.
I've trimmed the crap out of my liners and it still bugs me

Thanks

Depends how is your truck lifted? What is in the front and rear for suspension lift?

When I went from 6 to 8" I needed (not including leaf springs, drop pitmann arm and bracket)
-Extended brake lines
-New shocks
-Adjustable trac bar
-Had to drop rear drive shaft
-Had to extend front drive shaft
-Diff breather hose

Gah, seems cheaper and easier to downsize the tire width...
My lift is springs up front and looks like blocks in rear. I bought it this way

Never seen the "I think I have". Probably why I'm confused on your tires rubbing. Can you confirm it's 6"?

I said I bought it with it on, and that's what I told it was. If you can tell me how to check then let me know.
Rims are -44 offset

I also found it weird that 37's were rubbing as I had 35x12.5 on a stock e99 and it rubbed minor.

It may be since his tires are 14" wide... I have a 6" lift and with my tires and I get a very very very slight rub on full lock and a bump. But my tires are only 12.5" wide..


2000 F250 CCSB, 6" Lift, 20" Fuel Hostage rims on 37" Toyo MTs, BTS Tunes & BTS Valvebody, straight piped, Tru-Cool 40K cooler, scangaugeII, Autometer triples go in this week.
