    Want more height from the back

    Not a lot....but about 1-1.5” more

    Currently have the bolted in lower spacer that comes with the ProComp stage 1 6” lift

    So I have the 4.5” lower spacer with stock springs.

    Can I safely swap to 1.5” springs to bring my total rear lift up to 6”?





    Then....

    If I can do that what shocks will work? Would the BDS Fox shocks for their 5” rear kit work and not be overextended?

    From there if this setup works I guess I’d just have to get different bumpstops.

    Would like to prevent getting gouged for custom shocks if possible and I’m planning on running the BDS front struts when this upgrade occurs.

    Any help’s greatly appreciated...

    No one with input on running the 4.5” ProComp rear kit with something like an Icon 1.5” spring?

    Then would the bds Fox shocks work with this?

    If you could send Fox measurements, they will get you one that fits. Some Ram/Jeep ones are very close.
