Just curious, Has anybody ever double stacked coil spacers to get extra lift or would that be a bad idea.

The reason I ask, I've thought about putting an aftermarket bumper up front for more turning clearance. Just trying to think of anything other than breaking down and buying a lift. Every bumper I've seen cost just as much as the lift.

Any help would be appreciated!

Bad idea. It puts suspension geometry out of whack and you would most definitely have coil bucket contact.

Yes, that is a bad idea. Not only does in affect the integrity of the whole strut assembly but if your 4wd it will be too tall for your cv axles to handle. I mean, you could do it, but there is a risk.

Supremely bad (read: unsafe) idea. If there's one thing I would recommend doing right, it's your suspension, since it's like the main thing between your rig and the road.

Stiffer springs, adjustable shocks (5100s) or a leveling kit would be much cheaper and safer options if you're just looking for a few extra inches.

Also, welcome to the forum! :cheers:

Thanks for the input guys, I was thinking that it would not be all that stable, I was just hoping somebody has tried it lol.
I want the lift and bumpers but just having to put a motor in killed that idea.

Keep an eye out in this section. A few members on here pull kits off trucks all the time and post them up for sale. Good way to get one cheap.

Also,

What happened to your motor?

I bought the truck with it smoking on start and when you would pull off from an intersection. Everybody I talked to said it was either valve stem seals or rings. Either way was cheaper than parts and labor until LKQ corp screwed me with a bad motor.

I've moved this thread, so the "Buy/Sell" section is where you should be watching.

Carry on.
