Want to go From Fabtech 6" to 8" Radius Arm Lift
I really want an 8" and 38's now but just trying to figure out what it would involve and how much it would cost. I'm just curious as to what the best way to do this is. I was told I can just swap out the coil springs and take care of the back. I can get a pretty good deal on new coil springs. Would adding a spacer be just as good, if even possible? Also, will I need to swap out any other components? I am currently running a 5 1/2" (measured at the rear) tapered block in the rear and an add a leaf since we can't stack blocks in Utah. I'd like to get rid of my add a leafs if possible and I don't want to go with new rear springs. What other options do I have, if any? I've heard people talk of welding the blocks together or dummy leafs but don't know much about those options. I know the OUO traction blocks are sweet but that's alot of coin. I can get the Fabtech traction bars for 1/2 price if I'm going to need them going that high. Any input would be greatly appreciated. If I can do this relatively cheap I'll do it.
Also, any one with pics of an 8" on 37's? I'm going to try to sell my tires but would like to run them till I find a buyer if I go 8". I think Pahrump had an 8" on 37's for awhile but can't seem to find those pics.
