Options... Help me pick one.

Alright, I want to bring the front of the Ranger up a little higher than the back, you know bulldog it, I want to clear my 33 12.50.

I was toying with stacking washers, or F-150 spacers. Either way, I'm ready for an alignment.

I want it to function, be safe and not cost me boo koo money.

The washers and spacers are both options, if I hit the dealer how hard will it be to use the spacers?

I've never done anything involving spacing, just all out lift, like springs, blocks etc.

If anyone has any ideas on what you've done let me know.

I'm working with the truck in my sig.

Did you ever get an 8.8 or are you still running that crap 7.5 with 3.??s. If you are make the axle number one priority. Drivetrain first, then lift, then tires. Always.

Breathe, just breathe.

I have a nice fresh 8.8", probably going in in the next few weeks, whenever I get a day off.

The truck is already lifted, suspension and body, I just want a little more up front, both tasks are simple, the rearend swap and the lift, I might as well just knock it all out at once.

I'm still running a D28, so while my rear holds together my front will be coming apart.

But I've rebuilt the D28, so I'm not too worried about it at the moment.
