Thumbs up why cant i get an answer on this?

ive researched and asked multiple ppl with no solid answer. i have the bilstien 6112's on the front of my truck, 5100's on rear. i want to lift my truck 6'', what lifts would work with the 6112's so i dont have to get rid of them. and why? Not understanding why they wouldn't work as the shocks/struts on a lift kit on the lowest setting. ANY info is appreciated because i seem to go around and around in circles. i hate the stance and i want to go higher anyway. 4.5 or 6'' is fine with me. Thanks in advance

I don't have an answer because I don't know but I would choose a lift you are interested in and call the manufacture find out of they would work.

Pretty sure it works the other way around.
You buy shocks that work with your lift.
How do intend to extend your current shocks by another 6"?

After a 2 min Google search, I've found that Rough Country, Zone Offroad, BDS, and Superlift all offer lifts in the 4.5-6" range that utilize spacers so you can use your current shocks. I'm sure there are others. If you're on a budget, I recommend Zone Offroad.

Two minutes is obviously not a long enough search, how does the even compare to the exhaustive search the OP has been through. You sir should be ashamed of yourself.

OP, I'm not sure why people on this forum have such a difficult time answering questions, but I'll give it a shot (sorry this is a few weeks late). From my extensive research on the available 4.5" to 6" lifts, here is what I have gleaned: On all of these kits, you will have to go with a longer REAR shock as none of the kits provide a way to utilize the short OEM stock length (or aftermarket short stock length shocks). When I went to have my Pro Comp 6" lift installed, my installer shop said that my because my truck was new, I could keep my factory shocks (coil-overs) as the kit provides a spacer for the top of the coil over to compensate. Or I could go with the one's supplied by Pro Comp in the kit. It was "recommended" that I go with the heavier duty shocks supplied with the kit as they will handle the much heavier 35" tires and 20x10 wheels, better. So, take that for what it's worth. For the record, I got my truck back from the lift installers about a week ago and have put a couple of hundred miles on it (both highway and city) and am extremely happy with the result. Whilst my turn radius has been slightly reduced (I knew this going in), the truck handles extremely good. I was worried that it would feel "top heavy" or too tight or too loose. As it turns out, it feels similar to stock. So, good luck if you have not already upgraded!

Actually, I did read EVERY post. I simply felt the responses were relatively weak and some, downright snotty (no offense). That being said, I now see why this forum has such low traffic. Forgive me, but I came from the T4R.org forum where most of us went out of our way to help out fellow 4Runner owners.
