Newb Suspension question.

I have just a typical 4" skyjacker short arm lift. I want to remove or cut my 3" bl in half. what i'm thinking is just coil spacers to keep it as high or is it possible to just use 6" coil springs since my shocks can accommodate a 6" lift?

First, why are you running 6" lift shocks on a 4" lift?

And 6" lift is too much for short arms.

I'm not, that was the question. Could 6" springs work on a 4" lift. And the quote is about my f150. 8" suspension 1" body...

And it says my shocks can accommodate up to a 6". Not that they're specifically made for one.
