Here is a pic of my truck with a 2.5" spacer on the front. It rode fine, but I have huge speed bumps in my neighborhood that I had to slow way down to go over without feeling the suspension over extend! It will ride fine, but you don't want to go hauling a$$ offroad with the 2.5" or larger spacer in the front. Additionally, you cant put longer shocks on the front either, that will open up more problems with the other suspension parts binding and hitting each other!

thanks blackram. i like to drive the truck w/o having to slow down for speed bumps and such, so I guess that answers my question. but your truck looks great! i wasn't sure about longer shocks so that's for mentioning that.

Just saw this on CST's website, guess this should make you feel more comfortable about going with the 2", they finally put it up on their site.

I actually order the CST 2" spacer today (part number CSE-C16-2). I'll be sure to take measurements and pics before and after. I went out to measure today. As it sits right now, from the bottom lip of the wheel to the fender: front is 28 3/4" and the rear is 32 1/8"
