I've got 2 inch spacers all the way around on mine. Makes the stance look 10x better but can start to wear the suspension components out after a while in the front due to the pitch it puts the tires at.

I have had a set of 1 1/2 on my rear for about a year and a half with no problems at all. But I bought the more expensive ones that are hub centric,and have the studs on the spacers.

I also had 1 1/2" spacers with studs in them, the other kind with just holes put too much stress on the studs. And from experience buy good quality hub centric spacers or hub centric rings for the spacers because I didn't know any better and started hearing a squeak now and again and it ended up being 3 broken studs on each front hub. If they are not hub centric they will shift. Oh yeah if you do go with spacers make sure you use locktite.

They can put a lot of extra stress on your suspension and things, I don't really see them being worth it

I got mine off of eBay. They're hub centric too. Paid $100 a set. I love them!
