Mine touch the spring when i turn all the way to either side, and i have to do this all the days several times a day to get out of my house.

I think i gonna try 2" o 2.5" instead.

I used to have the 2.5" AS. Changed to Biltein adjustables. Huge improvement in ride quality. No more topping out going over speed bumps and generally better ride. Also the Bilstein at the top setting netted me about 2.25" If you dont have an AAL in the rear, these ar the best option IMO.

I've got the 2-1/2"on my 09 SCREW 6.5' bed, should have gone with a 2", I've got a rattle I can't figure out. Also, it sits a little "to" level, meaning, looks good until I put a load in the bed and it squats heavily in the rear.

I'm gonna look in to the bilsteins or get rid of the 2-1/2" spacers and get 2" spacers.

The truck rides great, adjustable shocks 1-9 setting. If you dont mind droppin some cash, this is a must mod instead of the spacers. The Rancho's are comparable to the Bilstein 5100 (although I have heard those were hard to come by; backordered).
I think i'm gonna do it rigth, i'll look for rancho quiklift to level it up.

Must say I agree with vanoford. My shocks were up too. So i went with the rancho"s also. well worth the money. I mean what good is a new spacer lift if the struts suck. I got mine from 4whelonline. And Rancho had a $100 rebate on the four. raised me up bout 2.5 3 inches. and i can clear a 35 too
