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

Dry flow intake - 4" turbo back MBRP - 4" Procomp lift
35x12.5 BFG M/T - 17x9 Procomp 6001 - TW 6 position

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"... $$
