How to Change 4" Lift to 6"

G'day.

How do I change my 4 " lift to 6" ?

Vehicle has Advanced 4x4 Conversion.

Will I need to replace/upgrade my leaf springs?

Cheers Doug

Sheriff,. Due to the nature of the Advanced conversions, I think we need to know exactly what you have now to be able to answer that.

Just a warning it may be easy but it probably won't be.

My '97 7.3 Advanced conversion is a 4" conversion as well. My leaf springs are tired so I was thinking of upping the lift as well. When I contacting Advanced via Facebook messenger they told me the best replacement for my van's front leaf springs was Rancho RS41054S which is a 4" lift spring and seems to be discontinued. I looked up the specs for it. From what I can tell it's for a early seventies suburban. I don't know if the same was used for your conversion. But I've linked the specs the above noted replacement springs (just scroll down to the spring specs section). I haven't pulled the trigger on them yet because - one, I can't find anyone that has them and two I'd like a little more lift. I'm adding this because I'm interested in what anybody knows about what other springs might work.

Not sure you'll find an off the shelf part that'll work. I think your best bet with leaf spring packs is to have new sets made to your specs. Deaver comes to mind, but I'm sure you can source them locally, just need measurements, vehicle corner weights and $$$
