Spacers on 2wd 2002

So i added 2'' coil spring spacers on the front of my 02 2wd. Upon reassembly the shocks just barely fit. So I need longer shocks. Thing is Id like to build some I beam drop brackets to get the alignment a little closer. Tire Kingdom got it real close but you can still see the tires leaning out a little. Theyre Nitto Terra's 295/70/18 or 35x11.50x18.

Ive been thinking if i build brackets Ill make them 4'' and add another pair of spacers. If I do that, what length shocks will I need to get? And whats the best brand for a street driven truck? The most offroad it sees is the sloppy back yard.

One more thing. Tire Kingdoms tech said if I got adjustable eccentrics he could get the front alignment perfect. Ive never heard of these things and Ive been through 2 years of auto tech in high school. Im no ASE tech, but these have me puzzled.


I am a machinist for the New Orleans Sewerage and Water Board. Ive been an inside machinist for 5 years now, and a 1st class one for 2 of those years. We have the tools to check threads, like I said, Im lazy.
