I put a pro-comp 2.5" leveling kit which included top mount spacers and shock extensions.

zero issues, just make sure you get an alignment right away.

I used the Daystar spacers that go on top of the springs with a pair of longer shocks, worked great and I did not have to get it aligned afterward.

Either style of spacer should work fine, just remember that you need to either put shock extensions on, or put longer shocks on. Otherwise you will end up with a harsh ride because the stock shocks will be maxxed out in length.
