CST 4.5 Lift going on??

The lift is going on tomorow. Its a CST 4.5. My truck is A 2009 F-350, If I wanted to go higher after the lift. Can i install a front spacer in the front and add a leaf in the back. Not sure how its going to look, cause my truck sits higher than the f-250 already. I got a steal on this lift so I cound not pass it up. Was thinking about 2 inch spacer in the front and adding a leaf in the back. What do ya"ll think?

Thanks guys. Im pretty sure im going to get these wheels. Not sure on the size. 20 inch or 18 inch wheels. I think the 35's will look and ride better

don't know if you got rims yet, but go with 18's. 20's are gonna look too big with 35's.

just my .02
