Coil Spacer ?

Anyone ever added a 2" spacer (leveling kit) to a 6" lift kit?

I would assume it would be the same from 05+ so if you have had succes with anything from 05 up LMK...or failure....lol

I know Donahoe (Icon) has an upgrade for their 4.5" to make it a 7" with coil spacers in the front and new rear springs. So at least one manufacturer has added a coil spacer to an existing lift. Sorry I couldn't be more helpful.

Google Donahoe Racing or Icon Vehicle Dynamics and search their Super Duty lifts.. If you are on the East Coast then I think KLM performance is the east coast distributor. I not sure but I think that kit is on available for up to 07's because the haven't developed the rear springs but everyrthing else should work.

No prob...

If you put them on top of a 6" or higher lift.....your gonna need alignment cams which correct caster for proper handling.

Thats what I thought.....I only personally know of one person that has done it and he took them back off cause it drove like crap!


But theory tells me that you should be able to do it.

I mean you can install spacers on stock stuff and be good...you would "think" that after installing a 6" lift with the proper stuff to get you back to factory specs that you could install the spacers in top and roll with it....but I guess not.

THANKS!
