coil spring spacers

I have a lift that I bought used, I was told it was a 6" but once I got it on I believe its a 4" or 4.5. I would like it a little higher and have been looking on ebay at some coil spring spacers and have seen some 3" but on every website I see 2.5" as the biggest. wondering if anyone has a 3" that they are running or if that would throw the trac bar out of alignment too much?

well from what i just learned- yes the trac bar needs to be addressed. i leveled my 08 f350 and the axle is 1" further on the driverside. with 4" lift i hope you had a drop bracket or adjustable track bar already.......

Yah I have a trac bar mount already. So I think with the way it is it would be the same as someone with a stock truck putting a 3" spacer on.

i think thats correct. if you add any more lift you will likely need the adjustable track bar installed, as with a stock truck being leveled needs the adj bar to re center axel
