A little more lift

Ok I looked for this so ill ask. I have a pro comp 6 in ch lift on my truck and my tires are 295/70/18's and at full turn they rub a little. I hav trimmed the plastic a bit and they are rubbing on the backs not the front. So my question is, are there any other options to get a little more lift in the front? should i have went with the stage II lift and if so whats the difference? any help is appreciated thanks.

Since you are 4wd I don't think you can go any higher without tearing up the CV boots.

At least he actually used new leaf springs instead of lift blocks like most of the domestic guys do.

All the Jacked up domestic trucks around here are running around on a DB lift up front with double stacked 4" blocks in the back on stock leaf springs.

You can add a suspension lift on top of the lift you already have, since it's just a drop bracket lift. It doesn't change the angle of your CV's at all.

TW member TacoRidinHigh has 9" of total lift accomplished this way. Several other have 7 or 8" of lift by using this method.
