Lift question

I have a leveling kit consisting of a mini spring pack in the front, and (2) 2" blocks in the rear.
How much lift can I add to this without having to extend my driveshaft and what not? I want to get some new rims with a negative offset to give it the stance look, but without lifting it, my front tires will rub the fender flares.
Thanks

You can lift it 4" without having to use of drop down bracket. Driveline is good for 8" or so.
Basically 6" is when you need to do lots of mods to get geometry back on line.

Could I add this kit and be ok, or would I be better off removing the mini spring pack up front and just going with a 4" suspension lift?

Scott knows those lifts better than I do. He will set you right.

Hey I did get new doorstipping for my truck and no more wind whistling. Just the uppers that take the sun. Going to do the surgical tubing trick you recommended. Gotta get on ebay myself.

Back to your lift. Not sure Zmann is going to like the front blocks.

Signature should be updated now. I posted the wrong link, I wasn't paying attention that the link wasn't leaf spring.
Could I just add additional leaf springs? Trying to save myself from having to pay the $1k for a 4" lift kit if possible.
