Bilstein 5100 @ 1.75 with 1/4 spacers

Wouldn't a 1/4" top plate spacer and the bilsteins set at 1.75 get you 2.25 of lift? Has anyone done this? I know the truck doesn't handle that well with them set at 2.5 so is this a option for someone wanting a little more than 2 inches in the front? I want a little more up front than the 1.75 but it seems like from what I read on here that it gets a little sketch at the 2.5 setting

Anyone who has done this please let me know how you like it! Pics don't hurt either.

Yes you would end up with about 2.25" of lift. That is a good setup for allowing less pre-load on the stock coils and still getting over 2" of lift.
