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.

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