Lift UPGRADE question..

I have a IRO 3.5 now, am wanting to go higher. The question I have is, if I use my lifted front coils in the back, how much net lift would I get? 7"?

Probably close to it. But at this point the best bed for going to 7" of lift is going to be buying a full kit and selling the current lift as a whole and using that money to offset the cost of the new lift. All the stuff that you currently have can't be reused so you'll be buying new anyways.

Yes, however, your current control arms would be useless, trackbars useless, and shocks. Get new control arms (all adjustable) or go longarm.

7 is pretty high without being on longarms...

If you go higher, and are looking to ditch your IRO set up, shoot me a PM...
