What are the lift specs?
1.5" spacers would be the safe bet. If you want to avoid them, wait for the wheels and cycle your suspension & steering to see where it hits. You may be able to just adjust the steering stops but then you have a bigger turning radius.

4"-3.75" B.S. are another option.

it seems like a good place to start with a lift but was really hoping not have the spacers

They aren't the disaster waiting to happen most people think they are. Just make sure you torque them down to spec. Then every tire rotation, double check to make sure none of the 20 nuts have come loose.
