    Grey wire mod, True flow intake, Spine tech exhaust, 3.5 inch fabtech coil lift and 2in body lift, indash tv, other sound system goodies.
    Is it possible to add 2 or 3 inch coil spacers to a fabtech 3.5 inch coil lift. I havent read anything about people doing this so i was just wondering what u guys thought about it.

    The reason why you haven't heard of anyone doing it because no one has done it. It's a bad idea to stack lifts like that. If you want a 6" lift then do it right, bite the bullet and spend the money and get a dedicated 6" lift and not some ghetto way of doing it.

    Actually - many many years ago I knew of some guys who put 1" spacers (2" lift) in with lift coils and they busted up the struts/shocks where the coil seats.

    It's way too much pressure for the strut to handle and the welds break.

    ^ Yeah, I'm pretty sure someone has done it, but would never admit to doing something stupid like that.
