Well that would be a drop bracket lift which will put your tires 5" lower at full stuff so yes it will fit.

2" add-a-leafs with a 1" block in the rear, then 3" spacers with 2.5" bilstein shock so 5.5" to give it that sqquat look

That's what I was worried you were going to say when I saw you were planning 5" of lift.

You absolutely cannot stack lifts like that. The billy's will have no more down travel left.

OP:If you really want the bro-lean/ass-sag look, just go with 3" up front and keep the rear stock. That won't cause you any problems.

Or if you have lots of cash, go with a 6" drop bracket in the front and 3" in the rear, or something like that.

Funny, when I noticed that my rear was sagging I thought it meant that my rear springs were shot, I didn't realize it was the new cool look.

Can I stack a spacer lift on top of a DB followed by some coil overs?

I wanna stuff 44" super swampers under my Prius...can I do it? Will it hurt my MPG's? I like getting 40mpg now so I wanna keep it efficient.
Put 80psi in yout tires, that's worth 3/4"!

Get some strap steel and make some 7" long shackles, use them with some blocks made from uni-strut, you's be all set!
