Someone confirm lift height?

I was told I had a six inch lift. 3" coils and 3" spacers..
I measured the spacers they do measure 3".
However, my front hub to fender is 21 1/2".. factory 5.9 v8 is 17-18"? That would mean I only had a 3" lift correct?

So it's in fact prob factory coils with just a 3" spacer.
I'm not a fan of spacers. In fact one is has a split in it. If I keep the same height, wouldn't it better to get 3.5" coils and then an isolator or is isolators needed?

coils are always better. With the adjustable arms, you are that much ahead. Make sure you have double sheer adjustable track bar in front and rear.

Isolators are needed, I'd get new ones if I were you. Hit up Kolak (PM here or [email protected]). He'll have the new isolators and a great deal on coils for you.
GChief and Tomcorr like this.

thank you for a very good response. I think I'm going to do a front to rear swap and just get new three and a half inch coil for the front and a few isolators. I have a front adjustable track bar but I don't believe it has a double shear bracket it looks like the factory bracket. So should I just buy a new bracket for the front and that should be good?

Sorry I should have asked that different. Do you have a short or long arm suspension?
