Question Extra Lift Question

I have a 2in body lift right now and a 4 inch short arm suspension lift, i was wondering if there is any way i can add like 2 or 3 more inches to my suspension lift without buying a all new lift kit, is there a way I can do like like springs or something without messing with my body lift anymore.

you can add 6" or 8" springs.

but you're pretty much gonna need to totally redo the suspension...new shocks, bumpstop extensions of the correct length, long arms (and if you're going to do that, might as well custom build something with good geometry), move/relocate the spring perches & shock mounts for better alignment (fabrication & welding), adjustable track bars if you don't already have them, reinforce some brackets (more fabrication and welding), longer brake lines, obviously a SS-SYE, new rear driveshaft, of course steering and brake upgrades...and a whole bunch more stuff I'm forgetting.
