    It is simply a solid piece of billet aluminum so there is not much to have a problem with. Its solid.


    The front spacer is Rough Country and the rear spacer is from Heavy Metal Suspensions. I have no issues at all with the shocks. For the price, I have zero complaints.

    If I did 2" front spacer, could I get the caster to where it needs to be without replacing ucas?

    I second this. Costs more than just spacers, but once I got it installed it has been great! I don't regret spending a bit more up front, though I thought I might when I first bit the bullet and paid for it all. It's a little stiffer, but in a good way.

    I was shooting for 2" all around and finally decided on Bilsteins in the front, OME Shocks and Dakar leaf packs in the rear, spidertrax wheel spacers, and a taco lean spacer.

    Before on stock tires and wheels
    35.25 pf 34.75 df 36.75 pb 37 db

    After on stock tires and wheels
    37 pf 36.75 df 38.75 pb 39 db

    Also, I am surprised how noticable the handling difference with wheel spacers is. Really liked how it took the corners after adding the wheel spacers.

    Just my 2 cents

    Wonder if I could get by with doing Billsteins on all four corners...crank them up couple notches and be level?
    It is primary a daily driver/fishing hunting truck....little to no serious off-roading. What you guys think?

    I thought about that as well, but read on here that it will preload the coils and cause a very harsh ride due to the coils not being designed for the increase in lift? No personal experience though, that is just what I read here. You might look into the Eibach Pro Truck Lift, I researched this site a ton before finally deciding on a small lift and ended up going with Eibach over Bilstein. I am still waiting on it to come in, but if it is as good as the reviews on here say it is then it is another option for you. It comes with all four shocks & front springs designed for up to 2 inch lift for less than $600, you would still need a block or add a leaf for the rear though. Front shocks are adjustable just like the Bilsteins
