suspension lift with stock springs

I was looking through some posts on suspension lifts and came across this posted by another user:

A long time ago I posted how to avoid spring sag on lifts, basically you just use the stock springs and move the mounts further from the frame. We have been doing this for about 15 years, and it cost very little.

I was just wondering if anybody out there could either give me some more info on this, or tell me where the original post was where this user talked about this procedure. Also, is this for leaf springs or coil springs? Thanks.

Re: suspension lift with stock springs

It is not very clear, but I would guess he was talking about moving the mounts from the frame lower. It would require welding I am sure. Basicly I think he is talking about moving the mounting holes for the springs farther away from the frame. Look at the holes where your springs are connected to the rest of the jeep, if you spaced these out more from the frame you would essentially lift the jeep. I could be wrong but I believe you would have to lift both ends (shacker hanger and spring hanger end) to get full lift, otherwise half the lift would occur (like a shackle lift). It seems like it could be a good way to get some more lift, I am not sure how much without stressing the frame to much. Also it seems like you would need pretty good fabbing skills. Although I think some shackle reversal kits do lift a jeep an inch or so. Hopefully I did more good than harm clearing this up, and I could be 100% wrong.
