6 inch lift questions

I currently have a 4 inch suspension lift. I want to go to a 6 inch. What is the easiest way to accomplish this, add a leafs or a whole new kit? Also will brake lines or driveshaft have to be modified by going to a 6 inch?

I would recommend going the whole distance and use a kit. A new pitman arm is probably going to be needed with that lift, or the steering will get real squirely. Don't go cheap.

Yeah I realize that the steering geometry will need to be corrected, I'm asking if the stock brake lines and driveshaft will work for a 6 inch lift?
