    Default Need advice on how to get 2 more inches of lift and good angles

    I have the ccm 2.5 upper coil spacer up front and 2.5 inch blocks in the rear. I'm ordering a add a leaf. Should I get an axle shim? Also do you think I should drop the transfer case any? And up front I'm not sure how to get another 2 inches with good cv angles. Any help

    Do you have any driveline vibrations now? I don't think you'll need to drop the transfer case or add axle shims otherwise. As for getting more lift up front while still maintaining good CV angles, I don't think it's possible unfortunately. I'm really not sure though. But since you have a leveling kit and want another 2 inches on top of that, why not do it right and save up for a full lift kit?

    2.5" blocks in the rear will only give you 1.25" of lift, after removal of the factory 1.25" block. Of course I'm assuming that you are not planning to stack blocks....I hope you aren't anyway. As far as the front end, you are maxed out man. There are people out there that will tell you that they have 3" and 4" worth of leveling kits crammed in on their trucks, but DO NOT do it. It's a sure way to destroy your front end, ride quality, and most importantly it's a major safety issue. Do it right or not at all.

    That's what I was afraid of. Yea I'm not gunna be stacking blocks, I love my life. My truck rides great for being on mud terrians. My issue with buying a lift is I got other vehicles that need my money. I'm Gunna do some research and possibly build drop brackets and all that.
