More lift!

Whatsup fellas?

Okay I have a 2005 f250 6.0 4x4 with a superlift 4 inch lift.
(or so I believe, it was on the truck when i bought it)
One of the back shocks has a dent in it and the other cracked completely in half.
So I figured while im at it might as well lift a little more if possible.

So a couple questions, how could I figure out exactly how much lift I have,
and if I was to replace the rear blocks with some that were 2 inches bigger and add a 2 inch spacer in the front, what else would I have to do?

Thanks in advance!

Yeah, see thats why i figured i would go ahead and do the bigger blocks and spacers because i need to replace the shocks reguardless.
I just wanted to know if there was a way i could figure out exactly how much lift i have, and if there was anything needed to be done for a 6 inch lift that wasnt done for the 4.

Most likely being a 4 in lift your gonna have a 2 in aftermarket block below the smaller stock block. So just get a measuring tape and see what you got.

i've measured it before, if i remember correctly i have 5 inches all together ( a 3 inch block, and 2 inch block), and that doesnt really make since to me, because the factory f250 block should be 2 inches, and if i have a 4 inch lift, the added block would be 2 inches right?

no thats right bc i had a 4in lift on my old chevy 1500 and it was 4in in the front and 3in in the rear...

but there is no reason why you cant put a 5in block in the rear and get a 2in cool spacer for the front or if you can come across a set of coils from a 6in suspension lift kit would be the best..

If you go with 2" more lift in front then you will have to get a box kit for the front that consists of drop pitman arm, drop trac bar bracket and longer swaybar endlinks. Probabely an adjustable trac bar too. My old lift was an Icon 4.5" lift and I put 2" spacers on the bottom of the coils and that is what I did. If you are still using stock radius arms the you will need alignment cams too. I was able to use my stock brake lines. I had to lower my ABS Sensors on the front fenders.
