Just need a couple more inches

Looking to get a couple more inches of lift without shelling out too much cash. I have a pro comp 6" right now. Is it possible to add a spacer kit to the top of the coils to achieve an extra bit of lift?

I could even handle an inch, just need to take care of some minor rubbing

I threw an inch spacer on top of my 6 inch to get rid of my rubbing. It worked.

What kit did you get? and did you need re alignment? also, what did you do about the rear, does it have the bulldog stance?

Thanks

Personally I would find a taller spring to get the heigh you want. The spacer are ok but they can start to make noise. Also keep in mind if you go taller you may need longer shocks.

Taller shocks, yes, but not sure on the noise since I only have a couple thousand miles on mine
FWIW, I went with the aluminum block at the bottom and have had no issues.
I also didn't get an alignment.

I did a 6" top gun customz lift kit, and then added a 1" spacer from them as well. I didnt notice any driving differences or noises. I got a reallignment just to make sure everything was straight and good.

I recommend doing an alignment. When you taller it has a tendency to change your caster, which affects your return to straight after turns and it makes it kind of squirrelly

Shocks might not be necessary if you are only going up an inch; most shocks are rated for a small section of height anyways, but I would double check with the manufacturer to make sure on your particular setup.

Definitely get an alignment. I don't know how it is around you, but around here if you go in and the alignment is still within specs, they will let you leave no charge. So there is really no good reason not to at least have it checked out.

Even if you need an alignment for just a slight change out of spec, whats ~$75 compared to your 40k-50k truck with a good 3-5k in lift, wheels, and tires right?

Goodluck
