Add 2" to 6" = 8"

Maybe this is a stupid question and maybe i cant do it very easily without just re-doing my lift.

But whats the easiest way to add another 2" to my current 6" suspension lift with blocks in the back? i know my shocks will be fine for the travel as i just put new icons on it and made sure i would have enough travel if i wanted to go higher.

Do you think spring spacers in the front is a bad idea and how hard are they to install? also for the back could i just do bigger blocks or add a leaf or something?

Thanks for the help.

Cole

I would call Top Gun Customz or Truck Toyz Performance and let them set you up. I am thinking of doing the same thing. I have been told I need a spacer and change out my rear block and more carrier bearing spacers and an adjustable track bar. I already have carrier bearing spacers and blocks from my current lift and one off my 08. All this should be pretty cheap though except maybe the trac bar. You may have to have longer shocks. Mine were for a 6" lift. That might be enough. Who knows?
