6" lift to 8" lift questions..

Currently have a 6" all spring Superlift on 37's.

How easy/hard would it be to turn my 6" lift into an 8" lift?

As easy as adding 2" blocks front & rear, or is it not that easy? What parts would be needed?

Thanks in advance for any help, suspension/lifts really isn't my area of expertise.

An adjustable track bar would most likely be needed. Shocks maybe it would be close. You couroped drop shackles. And you might have to legthen the front driveline I know one my 95 I had to. Check out sky's manufacturing they make a decent drop shackle kit.

Or another option like I did with my 95 was took my stock rear springs and cut the springs into shorter pieces and added them to the spring pack just don't use a torch not supposed to heat spring steel.

From what I've been told, blocks in the front are a no go. Not safe for turning

Here's a post i made a month or so ago asking this exact same question. Talk to DCSpecial if you have any questions. He's very knowledgeable. Also you might get a better response/more responses if you post in the suspension forum instead.
