Ok, if I use 4inch lift springs, what kind of shakle flips/drops/relocations do I need/use to get a 6inck total lift?

It all depends on the type, length and location (Relative to the frame and original parts) the front hanger is,

And the the shackle bracket, as well as the length of shackle being used, and wether or not you plan to use a block.

There is no one answer fits all to this one.

Ok, I don't want a block, I meant 4inch springs all around plus a 2inch shakle lift/flip.

if you lift via shackle on only one side of the spring you will only net half of the overall extension. example if you do a shackle that is 3 inches longer then you will only get 1.5 inches of lift. kinda like tires, half is up and half is down.

shackle flips generally give 2.5-3 inches of lift typically depending on spring rate and condition. so keep that in mind
