Default Help! Adding more to lift

Having trouble figuring this all out, so I hope I can get some insight!

I've got an 06 Ram 1500 Megacab, just put a 5" Rough Country lift on it and just got in some 37" trail grapplers. I'm trying to lift it another 3", but I didn't want to do a body lift just yet, so I was thinking just a coil spacer in the front and I'm going to put new leafs in the rear. I'm not concerned about ride quality so much, it doesn't bother me. So my question is, will this work? If so, what else do I need for the front if I'm doing coil pacers?
Thanks in advance!

id just do the body lift, you're asking for trouble any other way unless you can get some bilsteins in there I'm not to familiar with the 06 models.

I'm starting to get better mechanical skills the more I do stuff on my truck, I looked at the directions for putting a body lift on and it looked a little difficult. I'm guessing what I want to do isn't done often because I can't find anyone else with that setup. Thanks for the help though! By the way, what's your opinion on the install/outcome of a body lift?

Body lifts if not abused are great, not generally recommended for off road use. With that said most can get them installed in a day with basic tools and a jack while following the directions, the Body Lift of choice for most is the Performance Accessories 3" lift. As far as the coil on top of the lift in the front that is not a very good idea at all. If you are wanting pricing on the Body Lift let me know I would be more than happy to get you the best pricing around just shoot me an email to sales@bullysperformance.com

Thanks
Jeremiah
