Can you put spacers on when you already have a 3" strut lift?

    I've got a 3" skyjacker strut kit on now and it still looks a lil lower in the front. I want to add a 2" aluminum spacer but I'm thinking it would put way too much stress on my cv shafts/joints/tie-rod ends..etc...if I can get it on in the first place and even get an alignment. I would probably be replacing those items every year or so. Not something I want to do...BUT, does anyone say the contrary? Has anybody done it? Does any one know of any other options? I can't afford a 6" lift just yet, and a body lift seems like it would be a pain in the a*s to put on. Thanks for any advice you can give.

    You can think about it, just don't do it.

    I was wondering the samething Ragin. How do you like the Skyjacker 3" Strut Lift? i was going to get it too and i already have the procomp 2.5" leveling kit but i think it has dropped down to a 1.5" since it has been on so long and i got it tightened down. I was just reading another thread, and saw where he had ordered a 1" Differential Drop kit.. Would it be okay to do it with that drop kit?
