:hmmm: The best way is to have your springs rebuilt and re-arched or a new set of springs made that would give you that 3 inches of lift. You could also look for other used springs that could be adapted but that would be a lot more work (trial and error) and may require new frame mounts too. Lastly the cheapest way is to add 3 inch lift blocks between the axeles and spring pads you would need longer U Bolts and longer shocks for this and any of the above too. You could also do it the say way 4x4 guys do and lift the body up with some 3 inch blocks between the frame mounts and the body or a combo of the any two. Good luck :nod:
