has anyone added coil spacers to their existing lift kits?
I run a 3" lift now,
I've been thinking of adding them for additional ground clearance.

They may give you a little more lift out of that style of "coil spacer" (wedge type)...... but will also decrease the springs ability to compress = less suspention travel and poorer ride comfort. I wouldn't recommend it!

If you went with a coil spacer that spaced the spring from the end, that would be better...... but I'd take a close and careful look at current CV angles. The steeper you go the hard it is on them and the faster they wear/break.

I added some of them to my front springs ..was told of them by Clinebo..but I used for the plow lessening spring compression during lifting..I did not see any gain in height tho...

all that would do is stiffen the suspension a lot. No additional lift

Like al said, those are mostly for keeping the front springs from compressing when lifting a plow. Not for adding any lift.

Thanks, Im glad I searched before posting....this is what I thought and it was confirmed by this thread. I may still get a set for when the plow and chains go on.

More lift will increase your axle angles so make sure they can take it before you add more lift.
Is your catvos lift all in the a-arms or does it have brackets too?
You could add a bracket lift or make your own to move the upper shock mounts down an inch or 2.
I am thinking about stacking this one on top of my 5in.

If you have deep pockets a portal lift is always an option too.
