HEY GUYS IM GETTING MY 2.5 RUSTY'S LIFT PUT ON BUT 2.5 INCHES IS JUST NOT ENOUGH FOR ME SO I WANT TO ADD SPACERS BUT WHAT SIZE SPACERS DO I NEED TO HAVE TO GET AN OVERALL 4 INCH LIFT? I KNOW THIS SEEMS LIKE A DUMB QUESTION BUT I DONT THINK A 2 INCH SPACER WILL FIT ON THE END OF MY SHOCK......PLUS WHAT KIND OF SPACER DO I USE FOR THE REAR?

If you add a 2" spacer to a 2 1/2" lift - you'll kill your CV's (assuming you can actually bolt everything together)
2 1/2" lift are the most common because that won't kill your CV's anything higher is a risk

you might get away with an additional 3/8" Clevis lift

but check your CV angles 1st
