hey guys just want to see if a few thing will work right now i got a 05 regular cab 6.0 4x4 it has 2.5 inch leveling kit up front and 2inch blocks in there rear onn 33s. Question is if i did a 4.5inch lift kit could i keep the leveling kit on there so id have 7inchs in the front and 6inch in the rear because i want the rear little lower then the front. Also could i do it if i went with a 6inch lift please let me no want to get some ideas

NOT RECOMMENDED, you CAN run a spring spacer on top of a lift. most cases your lift wont be engineered properly for the additional lift, if it includes radius arm brackets, trackbar bracket and pitman arm, adding the additional lift could throw the geometry out of whack.

now, if you account for the things properly , you can do it, but it would be like stacking blocks in the rear, MANy HAVE DONE IT, but ask thise who have had failures if they would do it again.

so i think i should just pull the leveling kit off sell it and go with a 6inch kit... more simple and done right. But to give me that extra 1/2 or inch higher in the front i could use spacers like u said or what can i do....Thanks for the help

Usually the lift kits come preadjusted for the stock blocks in the rear to make it level. The lift kit should come with a 6" block or new springs to delete the stock block.

It will work. I did it on my 05 a few years ago. You will need a couple extra things. Mine started with the DR 4.5" drop kit then I added a 2" spacer on the bottom of the coils to get 6.5" in the front. The kicker is you will need a drop box kit which includes drop pitman arm, drop track bar bracket and longer sway bar end links. If I remember correctly you use stock alignment cams with the 4.5" drop kit but different cams with the spacer kit and you will want to use the cams from the spacer kit. Look at an Icon 4.5" and 7" kit then compare parts other than springs.

so u are telling me i can use my front spacer witch is a 2.5inch spacer and just get a 4.5" full drop kit lift kit from what ever company i go with and id be good to go with that. and with the rear just add the block that comes with the kit to the 2inc i already have.. Would this be cheaper then geting a 6inch lift and taking the leveling kit out sorry for all the ????? but i want to order one of they other soon
