But you could measure before and after to make sure! then you could let all of us know.
I think I might just do that! Does anyone know how well the hydro shocks work?

I'm also joining the 2" bb club soon. Are all the bb kits 2" front and rear or do some lift the front 2" and the rears maybe 1.5" to help level it out? I don't like the nosediving. Right now I'm running 2 sets of stock spring isolators up front just to level mine out.

Did you have a shop install the BB? If no how much did they charge?

I'd throw some wheel spacers on too, gives it a meaner stance and extra clearance from suspension components.
What kind of work goes into installing spacers, tedious?

Also, whats the size scale like, inches I assume?

Check out the Spidertrax spacers. takes about 30 minutes to get the job done. You need spacers for a 5 on 5 bold pattern.

With the 245/75/16 tires did you notice some loss of torque?
