    What might be some downsides to adding 1.25" spacers to my '07? Would I need to realign? Excessive bearing wear? Negative camber? Thinking of doing this for a slightly wider stance & stability. I have a 3" lift. Everything is pretty basic with 5100s. Any advice? Thanks guys?

    Factory wheels? No alignment would be needed. You are putting more stress on bearings as you move the wheels outward. Therefore, the bearings will wear faster, but not sure about excessive. I have run small spacers on cars in the past and the only problem I experienced was wheel balance issues. Make sure you get some spacers that are hub centric. That is, they will perfectly center themselves on the hub.
