    ill sum up what this thread will be

    -dont get a spacer lift
    -you will need to trim for 33's (even with a 3" lift)

    spacers cost more than upgrading shocks to 5100s all the way around. i hae mine set a 2.5 in front with rear aal and 285/75R16 (33s)

    A little off topic, but your BBS's are 18x9, not 19x9.5, just fyi.

    Back Space is the key to getting 33s to fit without trimming
    Mine is at 2.5 to 3 , no trimming, rubs on frame a little when I steer against the lock going left because my rims are 4.5 in back space

    Here is a pic

    I got my 3 inch spacer lift yesterday..it actually rides better now than it did before..had to trim the bumper a little bit..but other than that no rubbing with the 33's.
