Question 3in susp. but want more?

We recently decided to go with a
3in suspension lift on our 2010 crewmax. But, now are
Wanting more! Lol
How do you add more lift? Would we just have to start all over
And go with a 6in or can we add to the existing 3 in. Sorry, I don't know
A ton about lifts! thanks!

I'm wondering the same thing, but if you have the stock control arms it might not be a good idea to go much farther. it will put the cv's and control arms at an extreme angle which might cause issues and premature wear later on down the road. That's why I haven't tried adding anything to mine yet. Anyone have any thoughts on this?

Good point, yeah I have 4wd. What is an acceptable/reasonable max height for stock control arms? 4WD/2WD

Unfortunately for us 4by guys our options are more limited. I see from your Sig you paid good money for kings, are you running spacer lift with those ?

I don't have any spacers on mine, just the King coil-overs in front set at 2.5in and King shock's in the rear. I'm sitting more or less level. I would like to go higher in the front so I can add blocks to the rear. Just don't want the cali lean. How high would be reasonable for 4wd in the front? What size spacers would be ok?

Ok AK I'm not 100 percent sure but I don't think you can add a spacer lift in the front, but from my understanding the kings adjust up to 3inch, so you should be able to max those out, and add a 1 or 2 inch block in the rear or coach builder shackles or aal. That should work fine as I'm running a ready lift 3 and 2 and I'm leveled. Plus you paid a pretty penny for those kings so if it were me it would be hard to change em out. As far as you go sdale what size tires/rims you looking at, with my 3/2 I can stuff 35 inch tires with 18s or 20s,

OK thanks, Yeah, I can't imagine getting rid of the Kings. They are great. I would max them out, but I was hoping not to stiffen the front or lose the drop in travel at ride height. It would just be fun to throw some bigger tires on there. Thanks for the info.

AK what size tires are you wanting ?, would you notice the difference if you Max the kings out ? I didn't think you would not on a high end like that

I don't have a specific size in mind yet. I would like to put the xd rockstars on but I heard and read the 18's won't fit. Is it correct that the 20's will fit a leveled truck. I already did the skid plate mod to fit my 275/70r18's. I haven't tried it yet, I left them at the height they came at because King said if you maxed them out it would effect ride quality, and the angle of the cv's was somewhat unsettling, so I wasn't encouraged to max them out.

Ugh rockstars.... Really LOL well maybe AK don't have very many people with them. Umm you can buy uca's if your that worried about it... Also I wouldn't be the one to tell you guys what size it offsets will work. Umm but another option is a body lift, or maybe air bags. I've not personally used either, so I can't say its good or bad. Body lift wouldn't effect any suspension angles so your safe there. I've just heard from people they look kinda funny..... But It's not very expensive, and it will give you extra room for those tires and wheels.

Lol, I know I know, I have heard they are overused somewhat. I haven't seen any in Ak yet though. There just aren't any other wheels I would actually buy. I really like the stock ones, and have always been a fan of stock wheels with big tires, but I have the mod bug I guess. Hopefully this will stop me from spending more money on things I don't need... but it won't...
