You'd want to run a hanger and shackle, but yes you can run say a 2" mini spring back with a 4.5" hanger and shackle to make a 6.5" lift.

Of course you need a few other parts to address steering issues for that height to have it properly setup.

4" total lift?

You'd need a front box kit out of a 4" lift.....pitman arm, trac bar bracket, sway bar links, etc..
Shocks meant for a 4" lift, bumstop spacers or larger bumpstops.
