Getting from 4" to 6" help

I have the 4" maxtrac spindles up front and blocks in the back with the extended brake lines. What's the easier route to 6"? Bigger blocks in the rear and a 2" spacer up front on top of the coils? Any opinions would be appreciated thanks

i have the maxtrac spindles now with bilsteins 5100 at 2.5 now but will be selling the bilsteins within the next week or so because im upgrading to kings...


I hate to thread jack at all here, but I have to ask u, when will u be wanting to get rid of those bilsteins? I'm down the street in cypress and need bilsteins for mymaxtrac lift too

Yeah I called Jacob at suspension specialist and he recommended to do a 4" block in the rear with extended shocks back there and just a 2.5" spacer up front......what would be better billies at 2.5 or a 2.5" spacer?

I'm just saying that's what maxtrac sells as their 6" kit. 4" rear blocks with extended shocks - 4" spindles and 2.5" spacer up front with extended brake lines......

To be honest I would just do the billys in front and set at .85 if thats what you wanna do. If you do a single leaf make sure to get the long one and not the short one. If wanting to do an add a leaf I seriously would get the icon progressive leaf pack or wheelers version. A lil more than a add a leaf but better in the long run. Plus you can still run your overload leaf for an additional lift in rear. If you wanna do a 1 " lift block in rear let me know as I have a brand new one w the u bolts I never used I could sell ya.
