Default 4/6 drop back to stock question

On the front I did 2" drop spindles and 2" drop springs. I don't want to remove the spindles(recycled stocks anyways) so Do they make a 4" lift spring, or just go with stock springs with a 2" lift spacer? The rear I flipped back already.

Why don't you want to go back to stock spindles? I'm sure you could find someone willing to swap some stockers for yours (maybe with some cash to boot). You'll already have it apart when you do the springs. Using a lift spring or a 2" spacer ( I'm not even aware of one) would be a ghetto way to do it, not to mention creating some weird suspension geometry and confusing the hell out of your alignment shop. JMO.

You have a good point. I tried trading the lowered springs for stocks but no bites, but maybe with the spindles it would be more attractive. I saw some I think titanium spacer on ebay for a 2" lift. I saw someone in a forum using 2500 springs that gave a 1.5" lift..
