need more lift.

Currently have an 8"rough country 4 link lift with rear springs. But I left the factory block in the rear and I want to lift my front about 3 more inches.what do you all think would be the best way to go about it.05 f3t0 cclb srw.i was thinking coil spacers and flipping the ball joint for the trac bar.would that work?Ny input would be greatly appreicated

A 3" space is a lot in my opinion. Good call on flipping the track bar. Personally I'd try and find a spring long enough to meet you height needs.

06 f350: 8" ICON 2.5 resi's, ouo ala's, pmf track bar, dual stabilizers, custom 5" exhaust, 37" BFG km2's, 4.30s, 08 tailgate w/step, 08 tail lights, coolant filter, BPB oil cooler w/p 58v ficm and radiator, ARPs, 175cc, MTW s1 billet, ported intake, egr delete, onboard air and gearhead tunes
All the above just to haul the 900hp street mustang

I was looking at the 2 1/2 from sinister.i fit 40x13.50 mud grapplers on an 8" with out any issues but they look a little too tight in the front. And if I did the 2 1/2 flipping that ball joint shoukd line it up almost perfectly correct?

Correct, drag link and track bar should line up well with the track bar flipped. Just make sure your track bar is long enough and also may have some caster issues since the radius arm drops aren't meant for those extra 2.5" of lift

The bottom bar of the 4 link is adjustable.
