Any reason this wouldn't work?

I put the lift spacers on my 2WD truck and it made a really big difference in the overall appearance , but the front springs are sagging pretty bad because of the Ranch Hand bumper that was on there for a long time. I couldn't find any stock replacements online but did come across some Pro-Comp 6" lift coils that are sold separately. Withough getting into the whole discussion about how cutting springs is ghetto, does anybody see any real justifiable reason I shouldn't just put these on and cut them to the right height I need to give me the lift I want without the spacers?

Pro Comp Suspension Systems 24615 - Pro Comp Lifted Coil Springs - Overview - SummitRacing.com

Thanks in advance

Its doable but I'm sure there is a better option. However, that's all I got. did the spacer not help or is it just sagging that much?

The spacer definately helped, but I did an equivilent lift on the rear to keep the rake and the front is still a little saggy. Don't get me wrong, it still looks much better, but if this option would get me back to stock strength on the springs and add the lift I'm getting without the need for a spacer I'd prefer that. I think I'm going to go through with it after I get my wheels done.

I really thought this topic would get more response. Thanks for your input rider.

Is probably partly cause the majority of trucks on here are 4wd and the 2wd guys tend to not have any desire to lift their trucks.

Also might get more attention in the suspension section.
