Stupid question about springs

So I have a 2" BB with 5100s.

I want to go up another inch.

Obviously I don't need 3" springs if I stick with the coil spacers, if I go with a 1" spring is that gonna give me my desired 3" total?

I'm confusing myself the more I think about it

Thanks in advance!

Yes...get up country spring (1 inch lift) put your spacers on top....total 3 inch lift. Don't forget all the other bits you need at three inches. End links, adjustable track bar etc.

Yes - and please post pics after install...


I must assume you are talking about a 3" lift, not 3" springs (or 1" springs), so alfaitalia offers a reasonable solution.

Roger that. I plan on a few other things too like home made discos.

I'm still in the maintenance stage of my build. Map sensor, alt., fluids, brakes etc.
The boring stuff. Thank you!

Yessir. I want a total of 3" ride height. And actually I want her to sit level as well. That's the part I was confusing myself on
