Default Adding more lift

Hey everyone, So i have a fabtech 5.5 inch lift with 35 inch tires on my 2000 ram reg cab short bed. I want to see if anyone has any imput on this. I want to add 3" coil spacers to the front. Now if I add those spacers will my front tire not be cernter in the wheel well anymore? and stuffed into the fender? and also with the driveshaft angles, is the angle going to be too great? Also adding 3 inches will give me 8.5 inches of sus lift. I want to maybe add a 2 inch body lift and 38-40 inch tires. Ik theres a lof of questions here haha. OH! and what about the steering??? will i get death wobble due to adding 3 more inches of sus lift? And can someone tell me what they would do to lift the rear? it has 3-3.5 inch blocks and a add-a-leaf. and i wana be level with the front.

Hope someone can help!!!! Thanks Guys!!!!

You can do that but it's highly recommended by almost all lift manufactures to not use spacers ontop of a lift.
Unless you have an adjustable trac bar or find another drop mount for the height your looking for the you axle will be off center. Not only will it pull it into the passenger fender and push it out of the drivers side, it also pulls the axle back towards the cab of the truck(think of how control arms work). You will probably need a new pitman arm too.
If you don't happen to get death wobble you'll probably blow u joints, especially trying to spin that big of a tire with stock axles.
Going that big is really expensive, trying to cut corners is just going to cost you alot more in the long run.
Just my $0.02
