i need more lift?

ok so i am itching to get two more inches or maybe just one more is there a cheaper way to go about this rather than buying new springs or an rsk? i would love to find some used 8 inch springs but i think they only custom made those. any help or will i have to spend the big bucks

you could always add another leaf or two to your spring pack, but it will ride rougher.

I like to keep mine as low as possible for whichever tires i am running but longer shackles are easy and cheap for the front as long as you dont go over about 3 inches.. If you do you get into caster problems which cause death wobble. For the back, the shackle flip works awesome. i made mine but you can get them from ORU i think.

Noisy, knockin, fartin, smokin, chuggin, nasty, dirty, stinky, blown, turboed, natural aspirated, fuel waxin, oil leakin, torque makin love of my life Diesels.
96' F-350, Snorkel, Programmer, Big Injectors, hood stack, 10" lift, Locked and spooled Rockwells, 53" V-treads.
I also have an quad cab cummins, 6 speed, air raid, fass, 4 inch straight pipe, & Smarty tuner.
I like places so cold you can spread diesel fuel on your toast like apple jelly.

Do you guys want the truck higher or just more clearance for the tires? Cuz pre-runner fenders are always a way to go
