2.5 in. Spacer on top of 6 inch suspension?

I have a 6 inch Procomp Stage I lift, and I was wondering if I have to settle for a body lift or if I can add my 2.5 inch spacer on top of my lift.

I'm gonna take a wild guess and say that "don't stack lifts" is gonna be the answer, but go ahead and wait for another opinion.

Stack two Fabtech lifts on top of each other for 12" of lift.

No. I'm not an engineer, but you probably shouldn't do that. Get the body lift if you want it higher.

i thought this site was about asking ?s an showing off ur ride an helping others. if somome1 has a ? just answer it. u dont have to be a smart-ass!....... But any way yes you can sack the spacer on top of ur 6" BUT it will have ur cv's at a bad angle that will cause ur boots to bust in a short time. UNLESS u have a prerunner (2wd) it will be fine to do this. revteck spacer is a two peice spacer 2" peice& 1/2" peice. u can try useing the 1/2" peice for a little extra lift or vice-versa but a dont think i would do the whole thing although it looks bad ass and u can run 37"s!

Ok. Yes you can do it. Your ride will suffer, and you will loose some down travel. You may need some UCA's to get the alignment back into spec.

Putting the spacers on with the pro comp lift kit is essentially the same as putting spacers ontop of the stock suspension. Yes it will increase the angles but it would be the same angle that all of us 3" guys have.

correct me if im wrong, but but the procomp & fabtech only drop the diff bout 4" for a 6" lift. the 6" kit does not set the cv angles bak to the way it was stock. so it would be more like adding a 4" spacer(ballpark fingure) rather than the 2" spacer. it would be worse than adding the 3" kit to a stock truck. Again i may be slighty off but you can get wat im saying.
