Shackle Lift

If I already have a 6" lift, can I do a shackle lift to get a couple more inches. Anyone done this after having a lift already on? Thanks

I don't see why not. I think Rual with Stealth Automotive already has a shackle lift and is about to install a lift kit on top if it also. Check with him.

you are correct.... i currently already have a fabtech 3.5" shackle lift and an add a leaf right now and im installing a 4" lift kit on top of it to get me at almost 8" total... all i had to do is buy the 4" kit but have them replace it with longer shocks pit arm and a carrier drop kit from the 8" lift... how much higher you want to go? pro-comp has a 2" kit that is meant to go on top of a 6"kit... i comes with new shocks and the needed hardware.....
