92 2WD Dakota Lift

I have a 1992 2WD Dodge Dakota w/ 3.9mag. I recently got the idea in my head that I would make this truck a 1970s
prostocker by flipping the rear axle that was at one time over the leaf springs, to its new location under the leaf springs. I also added blocks to the new setup to increase the rears ride-height rougly 8.5 inches. Afterward, I got out the welder and ordered myself some chrome 64 inch sidepipes and slapped them on. The look is nice, but too much downward. Question now being: I cannot find a complete suspension lift for this truck and i was to raise all four corners up. I've heard of replacing the stock front coils with longer ones but I haven't been able to find them anywhere. Any help in this matter would be greatly appreciated. If anyone has any other ideas in lifting the front end, I'd like that as well. I'm only looking for about 3-4 inches lift in the front end. Thanks Again.

Since you aren't offroading it, try Fabtech.

Re: 92 2WD Dakota Lift

Try a set of coil spacers that are the same width as yours like maybe a toyota spring, I think theres a spacer for theres but I doubt theres one for the early dakota. Maybe tuff country has one available?

Re: 92 2WD Dakota Lift

If the coil spacer was 2 inches wide, would that make for a 2 inch total lift, or would there still be some sag and say a 2 inch coil spacer result in an inch lift?

Re: 92 2WD Dakota Lift

It would be a full 2" of lift, some spacers are poly which don't need your factory rubber coil ring to seperate it from being steel on steel but theres also the steel or aluminum spacers that still use it. They are made to compensate for that. The daystar spacer is actually bigger than 2" but with the ring out its right...

Re: 92 2WD Dakota Lift

Just wanted to close out the post by saying I went with the DayStar 2.5" coilspacers and they work/look fantastic. Before and after measurements prove that it was a complete 2.5" inch lift, as i had asked previously. Thanks Alot Everyone. Now for tires... [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]
