2.5" spacer + 1" spacer?

I know this is a dumb question, but I just want an extra inch of lift.

I have seen people add a 1" spacer to a 2.5" leveling coil, and there is the readylift 3.5" spacer. Soo... but could I add a 1" block to the bottom of the coil and a 2.5" leveling spacer to the top? Would the radius arms be at too much of a downward angle without drop brackets? And would the trackbar bracket and brake line extensions for a 2.5" lift work with the 3.5"s of lift?

Just buy the 3.5" spacer. As for the other questions, contact ready lift or another lift mfr directly, I would.

I don't think having a spacer on the top and bottom is good. I have a 1 inch TEI spacer on the bottom of my ICON leveling springs and it works great.

Ok thanks, I just dont want to buy the 3.5" because that would be $800. And i just wanted to get peoples opinions on here before I called readylift because I am assuming they will just try and sell me the 3.5" or tell me its not possible.

i think the track bar would be at to much of an ange then. i had a 4" lift before i got the 10" and it came with radius arm and track bar drop brackets. and a drop pitman arm.

Well i guess it is possible to add 1" with radius arm drop brackets
Ford F250/F350 Super Duty Radius Arm Bracket Kit

i just wonder if it would be fine without buying the drop brackets... 07stroker do you have drop brackets with your 3.5" lift? and if you dont, is your steering and front suspension fine?
thanks
