    Yes. You will need an alignment after the install.

    You will need an alignment, but at 2.5", you should be okay with your stock UCAs.

    I would not do spacers. I have them and hope to get rid of them SOON. I also have stock UCA's and my alignment is not right. If you do choose to go with a spacer you may want to look into UCA's for it as well. (you'll need them anyway when you decide to upgrade from the spacers :cool:)

    Well I am getting free tires that are too big with out a little lift. Money isn't right, right now so they are a quick fix for a tire replacement that is free! Once I sell the stock tires I'll start upgrading it the right way. What do y'all think about the old man emu settup
