I know there's people out there that have done extensive work to lift their 240s. Can let's say an inch be gained without major suspension changes with swapping springs? Stepdaughter saw some pictures online and now wants to Jeep her 240 out.

Add a inch made of what you like between the top of the front strut and the body (you will "gain" positive camber), do the same between Spring and trailingarm in the rear.
Done :-)

Mine lifted about an inch. Mine happened w.o. planning. I used stiff cheap struts up front.. The front end set higher than the back end. I tried different springs in the back. But didnt level out until I put some kyb gasadjust on the back. You will need to get an adjustable panhandle bar in the rear too. Hope this helps. I do have some new wagon springs I would part with cheap if you want them.

V8 jeep cherokee front springs in the rear with faricated spring retainers, dodge 2500 van shocks drilled out for thr volvo bolt in the rear. For the front you can eithet cut and reweld the spring perch up 2.5" ( not the best), cut and splice in 2-3" into the strut housing and space the bottom of the strut insert the same amount(better), or space the top of the strut mount an inch or two.

Nvm i can't read.
