8" to 10" of lift

Guys i have a question about adding some lift to my truck. When i bought the truck it had the fabtech 5.5 (6 inch) lift on it. A couple months later i put 8" leafs on the front and added a block to the rear. Im thinking about doing a 2" shackle lift to lift the front another 2". Wondering if my track bar will be long enough to reach or will i have to get an adjustable track bar. Apparently the fabtech 6" and 8" drop bracket are the same size. So id be adding 2" to that. Let me know what you think, Thanks

You will need many more parts than just the track bar...crossover steering for one.....best option is to sell all and start fresh.
