how about spacers. spacers compress the shocks but mine u that it does have long term disadvantages such as possible shock breakage. and ur ride quality will drop consiterabley

Hey! man you should have asked me. You can put air shocks on the back along with spacers and for the front springs just spacers alone. That is what alot of guys do to raise their cars. Spacers only cost $8 a pack.

just get f150 springs or do the spacers the springs would give you a smoother ride than the spacers, spacers can be found at auto zone for about 8bucks

The ones that twist into the springs are easier, I havent had any experience with the other ones. On my car I have a 2" lift on the back and 1.5 on the front with them. I could have went higher but I dont like alot of space between my tires and my fenders

I think that should do what you need it to do. I heard they have good kits, I dont see why not.
