Lifting a 2WD Dodge B350 Van

I have a 1996 2WD Standard Wheelbase Dodge B350 "Sportsmobile" pop top conversion van. Given that this van is 2WD and that Dodge Vans are Unibody in construction leads to my question:

Is there a good and safe way to "Lift" this 2WD van 2 inches to 3 inches MAX over stock suspension height without major surgery or goofy suspension angles?

Yup. Find the article on lowering Dodge pickups and reverse it. The pickups have higher height steering knuckles than the vans. The old lowering trick for the pickups is a raising trick for the vans.

It's not the spindle that adds height it's the lower control arm. The PU lower control arm has a 2-3 inch higher position for the spring versus the van lower control arm which is 2-3 inches lower in the control.

I’m interested also, I was planning on using a 3” eurothane bushing on top of the spring, hope to get 2” -3” lift

U Tube video (part 1 of 18) on how to lift a Dodge RAM van, as part of a full front end project. Been thinking about lifting mine.
