F->R Swap w/ Lift Coils

Has anyone tried swapping a 3.5-4" front coil spring to the rear? If so what size coil would you use to level out the front? Im a cheap SOB so I'm trying to figure out if this would be a good option if I ever want to go higher in the future.

that would equal out to a 7 inch lift in the rear ... you need long arms and a lot of other $$$$ for that ... IE = not cheap ... the springs may be but everything else is going to surpass that ...

in the whole scheme of things I know it's not going to be cheap, I have a welder and I plan on making my own LAs eventually. Im just trying to see if I can avoid any unnecessary purchases

at 7 to 8 inches of lift .. you are in the area that a lot of engineering and overbuilding is needed ...

just whatever you do .. do it safely ... don't try and run 44 inch tire on stock axles and brakes for one thing ... and a lot of others ....

you do realize that your on a unibody .. not the best option for a monster truck right ...
