I'll let you know in a week. My BudBuilt skids should be arriving tomorrow.
It's so subtle that it shouldn't make much of a difference with the way things line up. Are you still running the factory tin? If so, that thing can be molded and bent into any shape required.
The front diff on our trucks pivots from the rear, so the 1" spacers in the front will drop the diff an effective 1/2". It's not much, but it's enough to make a difference.
