Question re: 6" lift w/spacers for OEM shocks

A little help with this - in regards to the front spacers to extend the OEM front coilover set up, is it possible to incorporate aftermarket coilovers that allow for 3" of lift??? I've read that people are running extended travel coilovers to replace the spacer so it mounts to the stock mountng bracket but, it is possible to run something like a Bilstein or Toytech 2.5" - 3" coilover with the spacer????

Yes, there are a few folks on here that run coilovers or coil spacers on top of their 6" lift to get 7-9".

Tacoridinhigh is one that comes to mind. Also gotlift37

You'd be better off going with something like a Radflo that will give you between 6 and 8 inches of lift without a spacer.
