Default Lift Question

Haven't seen it on here before and after some brief searching came up empty handed. Have a 98 f150 xlt 4.6 2wd. My question is i already have a 3" coil spacer, could I do a 2" coil lift as well, or would my angles be awful. Another question would I need a drop bracket for my upper control ar to help that? I know the stiffness of the ride will get worse. Right now I have 285/70/17 Firestone destination mt's and fx4 17s. Thanks

There is almost no way to make that work. Look into a splindle lift. Rough country, fabtech, and doeschworks makes them I believe.

If you are wanting to go that high the only kit style way I would go would be Fabtech's 7.5". If you managed to make that lift spring fit without longer arms you will effectively destroy your front end.

Yeah I was assuming that'd be the only way. I'll just get the 7.5 and keep the coil spacer. And I just wanted to know my options King ranch. Am not going to do a body lift. Looks bad imo, thanks for the help jprevat

No problem. You cant go wrong with the 7.5" Fabtech. If you go bigger than 35's I would look into gears too.

No. Why would you want to go that high?
