    No. It rides like ass because I'm assuming you have a spacer lift for the front. How high do you want to go and how much you want to spend?

    Look at build!
    Mine dont ride to bad to be spacers, but wish id spent the lil extra cash to do it the right way. Get some Billie 5100's alll around n do away with the crappie spacer just set them accordingly to the height you want!

    And you cant go much higher then 3" if your a 4x4.
    2wd is another story!

    But Im assuming its been getting worse and your suspension has started to sag because of your bumper.
