Making a 4" into a 6"

I've got a 4" pro comp lift and have been researching the pro comp 2" leveling kit. Pro Comp says you can run the kit on a 6" lift to make it an 8" but says nothing about if you can run the kit on a 4" lift to make it a 6". Just wondering if anybody knows of a reason why you couldn't use it for this reason. Thanks for the help guys

Its the same thing. You may would have to change out some of your steering components like pitman arm and stuff. It can be done though

I have the same setup you got (4" pro comp, leaf stack up front and blocks in the back). It had the lift in the truck when I bought it. After a few months I upgraded the pitman arm to the 4"-6" one, its helped A LOT, esp with the bump steer. I am looking at doing a 6" all spring lift now. From what I understand the 4" and 6" lifts use the same pitman arms, sway bar links and shocks. When you go to a 8-10 you need those changed, that is why I'm going to a 6"... $$

I don't have a complete kit, but I have a pair of Fabtech 6" coils and rear blocks...no hardware. Look for my post in the classifieds section for more info. $150 plus shipping.
