Really can't say it is more of trial and error. Add some spacer then adjust as needed. You may need to add more or take some away.

from what i have heard almost every truck is different some need alot some need none. I think 1/4 is pretty average but i could be wrong. my buddy just lifted his 02 and put nothing in 6inch lift. My other buddy with a short bed did a 4 inch and had to put in a 1/2" spacer to make it right. so just get a ton of them LOL

1/4 in for every inch of lift is average. I have 1-3/4 for a DR 7" lift.
