I have a 2.5?" SkyJacker spacer up front and a Rancho add-a-leaf in the rear, stock shocks- which should be replaced with longer ones because they bottom out. I clear my 35x12.5x17's with no problem and it sits nice and level!

I've got a 2" spacer kit that goes beneath the front coil spring. I got it on ebay for about 35 bucks.

I didn't do anything with the track bar. The front end is still pretty much centered. I am concerned about the change in the caster angle, but I've been told not to worry about.

I didn't do anything for the rear lift. I have an F350 with about 4" blocks and an overload spring. The truck still has a slight rake.

I also have the 2" solid alum. spacers that i got through eBay. I've had them on for at least 5K and they've been great. Was able to put on 35's on the stock wheels w/ no probs. For $35, u can't beat it. Sits perfectly level, if u wanted a slight rake, u could add blocks or an add-a-leaf to the back.

Guys using the spacers (like the Ebay ones), have you noticed in difference in the truck's handling? Does the steering still return to center after a turn? Does the truck wander down the road?

The handling has seemed the same to me. Put a dual steering stabilizer on at the same time to handle the 35's, so that might have helped.
