do you mean spacers?

4.5"+3" =7.5" lift? i think that only works with longarms.

Has your springs sagged a lot? If not I would shy away from adding anything more than 2" on top of a lift that tall. If you want to go higher I'd look into long arms.

i've seen only 1 person running that kind of a lift on stock arms.. he says its fine.. His rig is one tough brick though..

i think he had 4" RC with 2" spacers on top..
