    After finding out the kit I acquired was a 2.5" front spacer kit (sold at 1.5") I was stuck with a snotty, nose up Taco. One of the forum members, Blktaco16 offered up his barely used 1" rear block kit and now things are finally level.

    I am heading for tires tomorrow (as mine are bald and dry rotting) and an alignment.

    Next up, 265/75/16 Pirelli Scorpion ATR's :D

    In my opinion I have not noticed a significant change what so ever but keep in mind that I am not a wheeler or off-roader. My idea of going off road is taking the family to the beach and playing around in the sand.

    I could not be happier with the way it looks or drives right now. I just hope they can get the alignment all dialed in tomorrow!

    Do you have an lean or sag in the rear? I have the same set up without the rear blocks. Wasn't sure what size rear blocks to get.

    The alignment is close but not 100%, so far I have been with this setup a while the tread wear is still very good.

    No lean or sag, the setup looks clean and I am still pleased...

    I DID HOWEVER HAVE TO GO WITH 5100'S AT 2.5 DUE TO THE HORRIBLE SPACER RIDE - If you are going the spacer setup, just be ready for a crap ride and getting yanked everywhere when you hit a bump.
