    Ive read that they can get weak but I'm not sure how true that is. I'm about to lift my truck 2 inches so I'm just wondering.

    This is solid advice! Skip the spacers, save your money, do it once and do it right.

    They are like 160 with shocks. So it wouldnt be too much more to do it the right way!!

    ALL OF THEM!...Then some more.
    Spacer lifts are terrible..save yourself the trouble.

    Billy 5100s are a way better option and can lift it 2.5''

    Eibachs are pretty cheap too.

    Tho your gonna want to lift the rear if you use Eibachs. Im running them and love em.
