how big before problems?

was looking the other day and kinda want to raise my stock truck an inch or two (maybe 3).

ive known many ppl that just put a flat spacer between the axle and spring.

how far could you go without have to change the shocks?

also would pinion angle be changed enough to cause a new vibration or excess wear to the u joints?

would you create a "bump steer" condition with a 2 inch lift?

any other considerations?

If you get a quality level kit like a Icon or RCD with a adj track bar you won't have any problems. They will come with new front coils, castor shims and shocks. If its a F250 you will need a taller rear block and U bolts or the rear will be low. You may get vibration so a carrier shim kit is advised. If you need additional info or pricing please PM me.
