    Can you add an inch to an already existing 3" lift? Or, do you have to get a whole new lift kit?

    If it is a solid front axle, which I think it is, you should be able to add leaves to the spring packs or even have them re-arched, years ago I did the same thing to Dodge pick up I had. It had a 4" Rancho lift kit and I had a local spring shop re-arch the front springs. remove the rear lift block (4" block) add 2 leaves and re-arch the rear springs to give me a total of 6" when all said and done.

    I agree with Adampaul1964. Re-arc or add a leaf.
