2.5 inch lift and stock shocks???
 
Can it be possible to use stock shocks with a 2.5 inch spring lift?

If not can I modify the lower mounting point with 2.5 inch home made spacers?

it's possible. homemade spacers would be the possibility. it's a pretty crappy idea tho.

this would be a verry temporary idea as I feel a 2" bb not high enough and a combo 2" bb + 1" bl is too high . I would buy correct shocks ovet rhe summer.

i wouldn't extend the shocks more than maybe 1.25" or so because leverage may be an issue. make sure the bumpstop extensions are installed because you definitely don't want the shocks bottoming out on the extensions. i use 1" home made shock extensions in front myself...just went to the local hardware store and bought some 1" steel standoff spacers and new bolts.
