2 more " via spacers would not be good idea. You could do 1/2" with a top spacer kit. But your best bet would probably be to just get a new set of front coils.

I will like to know too, since i want to do the spacer, but most people said not a good idea. I think worse case i may have to get a new set of RIM with the off set.

I'm one of those "do it right or not at all" types. Spacers have their place. Bro trucks that never see anything but cruising main street and the shopping mall parking lot come to mind.

Do you have 882 coils? I'm assuming so because of the bumper. If so then I dunno what coils you could upgrade to.

Granted, spacers are the cheapest option but I wouldn't consider it unless you stick to the pavement all the time.
Wheelers has a 10mm "lift enhancer kit" that would bump you up another .5" or so.

Good excuse to move up to coilovers. Jack the truck up, crank the wrench a few times and you're back where you wanna be.

If you had coilovers, you could change your ride height on a whim if you wanted to.

Coilovers can be adjusted on the vehicle. Just get the front suspension suspended, turn the adjustment wrench appropriately to raise or lower front ride height. 10 minutes and done. Makes adding weight (bumpers, winches, etc.) a snap.

Dang, I should have done that with those bilsteins instead of the OME maybe. Well, here I am with the OME; it rides great, but it is defenatly too low in the front for my purposes. I run 33s and there is a bit of rubbing. I guess I am seeing my only option is to install the tiny shim spacers it came with and hope they are just enough. And just to throw it out there, body lifts are out of the question, haha.

You could blow out the bottom of the strut.

The coils seat (on the strut) that holds the coils in place can't take that much pressure and will eventually break. I knew a guy who had it happen (years & years ago).
