5 inch 38s Pics inside

I decided to go ahead and put the 2.5 spacer on top of my 2.5 springs with the icon cams and no front sway bar and here it is. I can't tell any difference in driving over how it was before. I have 3 inches of additional blocks in back. No drop brackets or anything. I am goin to lower it an inch and level the back from there it's more fender than I like and taller than I need. It drives fine the brake lines aren't in a bind. Just thought I would share for those interested. Take it or leave it.







I AM NOT CONDONING THIS I JUST DID IT TO TRY IT OUT. PLEASE DON'T FLAME ME UP FOR NOT USING DROP BRACKETS. It seems the same as a leveling kit without cams which people run all the time so I tryed it.

I like it how it is....Slightly higher in the front. If it was my truck I'd leave it (JMO of course)

I love the way it looks. Will it wear out anything faster by not having the drop brackets?

What about the trac-bar. Did you have a bracket that dropped it with your 2.5 kit?

I do have the adjustable pan rod bar. And as far as I know as long as you get it aligned I don't see anything wearing out anything.
