Default stack leveling kits

well i decided not to put on that body lift, but im still persistent on getting a couple more inches of lift out of the front of this truck. could i possibly put another coil spring spacer leveling kit on? I already have the 1.5" on the top, but could i possibly put another one on the bottom of the coil spring? if so would i need new shocks?

Leveling kits are not expensive, I would suggest going and getting a 2.5" leveling spacer and doing it that way.

I have the 07 2wd, it says that sometimes 2" or more kits will not work even though they say for 06-08. It says the only one that will fit for sure on all of them is the 1.5" which i have. Should I try to get the 2" one, or maybe try the 2.5" one for the megagcab only? what do you recommend, and why not stack another 1.5" one on the bottom? Is it dangerous or something?

2wds are a bit tricky!

I am not sure exactly what is out there for the 2wd guys (sizes), but I do know for sure that a megacab part will not work (megacabs are solid front axle). As for dangerous, well it sure can't be good. I won't do it.........

I would just take the spacer out and save up and buy a spindle lift like http://performancelifts.com/cgi-bin/cart/CSSD1106.html and it will be much safer and better on the suspension than a spacer. Or here is a 2" spacer http://performancelifts.com/cgi-bin/cart/PLCDGU2.html
