    If you can afford it don't use spacers.

    If all you can afford is spacers, then keep saving your money.

    Look at some options here.

    The Ultimate lift kit is adjustable in the front. 1" to 3.5"

    The OME lift kit is also good but not adjustable. 3"

    If you want 3 inches, get the OME 885 springs with top plate spacer, and set the 5100s at the 0 or bottom setting.

    Or to get 2.5 inches then use the stock springs and set the 5100s at the 2.5 setting.

    Stock rim painted black with a 3" spacer lift and rear AAL (Add A Leaf)

    To have it to do over again I would have waited and did a true suspension lift...(struts and coils :) )

    If you want to go with the OME gear, I would stick with just that OME.

    That means, both front shock and coil should be OME, that way your ride is the 'best' it can be on the OME spring.
