Default need a little more front lift...need options

I have a 6" spindle lift on my txt as it sits. there have been two incidents over the past week where I have ripped off my driver side headlight with my tire, once when traversing a large ditch and another time front wheels came up when climbing a hill and when the front landed again, boom goes the expensive *** LED headlight. Whats my options here fellas? I don't really want hd springs cause im hoping to keep what little flex I have. can I buy a 2" drop axle? can I put 2" spacers between front axle and leafs????

I put a 2 inch spacer between my leaf spring and where it mounts to the body. Picked up longer bolts for a few dollars at my local hardware store.

didn't think about spacers there...what benefit does putting them between body and leaf have over putting them in between axle and leaf? just wondering.

and scotty is that what your calling a body lift? I cant find a 2" drop axle anywhere

My front springs was hitting my steering rod, I have a medalist with a txt front axle. It was pieced together prior to me buying it. So someone mentioned putting blocks there, I did a 2 inch by 2 inch by three inch block. Drilled a single whole for the rear bolt to go through it. To me it just looked a little more "factory" if that's what you wanna call it.
