Front springs in rear?

Iv heard alot of people say I could get 2.5 inch lift springs for the front, then just move my current stock front springs to the back, and get 2.5 inches of lift for very cheap. Is that how it works? That easy? Any welding or anything I'm not hearing about? Thanks in advance

I'm sure you have to modify the rear buckets. The front springs aren't as wide as the rears.

Go take a look at your front & rear springs, you'll see they are quite different.

I'm relatively " green" , but having done a suspension lift, I can't imagine how that route would work. Those springs aren't even close to the same animal. I'm thinking a nice budget boost/ body lift is more in your wheelhouse for a 2.5 inch gain. I'm quickly learning that there's no cheap way out..... Save now, pay later!!
