stacking lifts???

Has anyone thought of this? i know it is not a good thing to do, but... like using the drop brackets that lower the a-arms, use two instead of just one.... then dropping your torsion bar supports down too... someone shoot me down on this idea. i know that there aren't low engough gears for the front end that would really make this worth it to put the large tires on.... just an idea.

Re: stacking lifts???

If you look at what consists of the lowering brackets you will see that they cant be stacked.. Much less having multiple pieces holding a lift up like that.. Not enough stability.. Plus the only clearance you will gain is the tires you install.. In a sense you are keeping the lower subframe where the lower arms attach and the torsion support in the same location and raising the rest of the truck off of those.. Plus when you get above 33' tires the steering geometry becomes a problem.. BTW there are 4.56 for the front IFS out there.. Just got to find them.. diver had a few contacts for this...
