Depends. Assuming you have an all spring 8" lift, then you can increase the height with the hanger/shackles.

BUT

You will need to change to a crossover steering setup to raise the draglink to above the springs.
Also, might need to lengthen the driveshaft if it isn't done yet. Longer shocks might be needed, depending on the spec's of what you have are. Tracbar and lower relocation bracket will be needed too.

I did a 5 inch hanger and shackle lift on mine becouse it rides alot smoother from my experience then a 10 inch spring lift. I am currently running an 11 inch lift in front and a 10 in back. This is possible deppending on your pitman arm is long enough to go under the passenger spring without hitting. I do not believe the trac bar will be a problem for a couple inches of lift. You could also look into a Front Mini Pack Pan arm drop down spacers and ask them to send you bigger u bolts with the kit, becouse of the biiger 8 inch spring you have. This would solve the problem with the pitman arm hitting the spring. I used these when i had a 16 inch lift and they worked great.

I am also going from 8" to 10". Im doing PMF 6" hangers with 4" Icon springs. I will be doing crossover steering and a remote trackbar setup with an adjustable trackbar. I think you can get away with your same steering setup at 10" but will probably need a longer or adjustable trackbar as well as extended brake lines if you dont have them already for your 8". Also might need to lengthen your swaybar end links. Hope this helps

Hey man how are your 38s offroad? Any contact or rubbing?

Depending you may need brake lines also.

Tires only rub on spring at full lock but the suspension is really stiff. Thats why I'm switching to hangers and smaller springs to hopefuly soften it up a bit.
