    not one bit, i cant even notice a difference in the spacer, i was worried about it at first because everyone says stay away from it but honestly it rides like it did stock. with the rear aal its a bit stiffer than stock but i only notice it wen i go over things like speed bumps

    Well if your lifting for looks... a spacer is all you should need. If you want a little versatility then do 5100's set at 2.5" with a 1.5" AAL.
