I already have a 4" suspension lift. I was wondering if there were anything to get another 2or 3" lift out of the suspension to clear 35 or 36? I'm lookin for something cheap. Got any ideas?

Your options would be to have a body lift on it or to do something like longer coils or spacers on the front coils and chevy drop shackles on the rear.

I've heard that for the rear, people have switched to a chevy spring and flipped the shackle mount. But then they have to get the springs arched. I was wondering how much of an arch you would need for a 6" lift?

Re-arching springs never lasts as long as the OE bend if you use them.

The chevy springs are longer, you will have to relocate the front spring mount as well.

Explorer leaf springs are direct-fit and will provide about 2" of lift if they are not sagged out. All you have to do is flip the centering pin.

Belltech 6400 drop shackles for a chevy 1500 provide about 2" of lift for a Ranger/Bronco II.
