    94 f250 7.3 idi n/a with the ifs front suspension. im looking for a 4" lift that someone may have swapped out for a 6" or one cheap. Not a daily driver only runs a few miles a week when its running. so dont really wanna spend the money for a new kit.

    My front springs are tired out as well. Would stacking a few springs in there be a safe/reasonable/intelligent solution?

    Yes but get spring clamps and axle u bolts do not use the old one and get a center pin or bolt.it will ride harder tho.Ive made dozen [email protected]&!;¥$ packs from junk yard springs

    That is common knowledge to me, hopefully it is for other people too.

    I can't imagine re-using the u-bolts, that would be terrible! Most of the time, it is faster if they snap off. Are most HD trucks the same spring width?

    Yes there are quite a few junk yards around here, should be pretty easy to find. Probably wait till it warms up a little bit before I tear off my front axle haha

    Yep, here in MN we made history Monday, it was -55 with windchill. Needless to say, the 6.9 was hibernating!
