    Old man emu is in my opinion the best bang for your buck. I wish I had done that at first.

    The best is going to be expensive... so what is your price range? And definitely do not get spacers if you want off road capability.

    Don't even touch spacers if you want better offroad capabilities. Anything over 2.5" of lift up front will give you severe cv angles, so yes on the diff drop.

    Icons would be the way to go if you want the best, but after adding UCA's you'll be above your $1500 budget.
