How big of spacers are you talking? It effects more than just the control arms.

TPS, Temp Sensor, O2 sensors, Bad/Dirty Injector, Bad Coil, (can't remember if you have the distributorless ignition on that '99), exhaust leak before oxygen sensor causing it to get a bad reading and throwing off the mix.
Not sure if an oxygen sensor is sensitive to welding but that may be something to look into being that you just had the exhaust welded???
I have a distributor, I'm going to check on some things today, see of I can't get it running right

Yeah for the most part, when I re did the rear it ended up higher than my front, and I know for a fact those spacers will give me enough to level it, you can kind of see. The rear is at 4.5 pretty much

Put trail spares and tools and I bet it'll be level. Do you have a full size spare?

I wouldn't worry about it being level. You may end up with more issues than you'd like. You have the same front end as me, and I wouldn't add a spacer on top of 3.5"(?) springs. That's adjustable arm range. Not to mention longer swaybar links and shocks.

Shocks will be fine and I have away at drop brackets, not sure yet, I have a spare, just don't have a rim for it

Honestly, I'd go ahead and get adjustable arms first. It'l be a great upgrade. Then if you do add a spacer you'll be okay.

And long arms won't do anything unless you get longer shocks
