Any reason this wouldn't work?

I put the lift spacers on my 1999 2WD truck and it made a really big difference in the overall appearance , but the front springs are sagging pretty bad because of the Ranch Hand bumper that was on there for a long time. I couldn't find any stock replacements online but did come across some Pro-Comp 6" lift coils that are sold separately. Withough getting into the whole discussion about how cutting springs is ghetto, does anybody see any real justifiable reason I shouldn't just put these on and cut them to the right height I need to give me the lift I want without the spacers?

Pro Comp Suspension Systems 24615 - Pro Comp Lifted Coil Springs - Overview - SummitRacing.com

Here she is with the front sagging a bit, I'd like to have it up a bit more....



Thanks in advance!

if you like your teeth and kidneys ....YOU WILL NOT CUT THAT SPRING. you greatly increase the spring rate when cutting that much. that truck will ride like a straight axle gasser.

A 2" spacer is probably bout all you can do before you have no way to align it. I am assuming that it is i-beam front suspension. the more you go up the more camber you get, at some point you will have to lower the i beams so you can keep camber in check.

I had a procomp 6" on my 01 2wd. let me know if you want some pics. to be honest the 6" was not all that big. maybe an 1" higher than a stock 4x4.

Here is how I leveled my truck:

Daystar 2" leveling spacers
tufTruck heavy duty coil springs #2814
to keep it riding nice I added the Doetsch Tech Baja Rider shocks.

truck rides a little firmer than stock but I wanted it that. Handles dirt roads and rough stuff pretty good
