    I’m really wanting to get as much height out of my 5Lug as possible without spending $3,000 on a kit. Is there anyway I could just convert my front coils to 6 lug struts?

    Doestch sells a 6/3 lift that you can fit 32” tires on. That’s about max
    (I have but been to lazy to install)

    6lug coil overs will not fit. They are massive.

    There is a coil over conversions kit for 5lugs but its for lowering not lifting

    Even a 3” lifted 5lug on 30s is About 1-2” shorter then a stock 6lug
