Thanks for all the advise.
Spinlock can chime in. Not sure what you are trying to do, personally I would start with 1" spacer up front - it doesn't matter who makes it because they are all basically the same. TeraFlex, Rancho, Rubicon Express, Synergy.. or Daystar.
The major difference is that some retailers sell different thicknesses than others. My guess, spacers are all probably molded by the same supplier and retailers brand them as their own.
So.. you can take the approach to inch it up in increments of .5", .75", 1.00", 1.50" until you reach the desired height. However, personally I would never raise a suspension more than 1.00" using spacers - after that I would consider installing new springs and control arms. That's my preference on these 10A's. You need to retain the factory isolator that measures .5" .. so if you add a 1.5" spacer in the front you will have 2.0" of rubber and poly between the spring and upper spring seat.
Also, again... remember, you already have a factory "spring" lift with stock suspension components. Adding 1.5" may take you beyond 2.5" where you need to start thinking about changing or adding other components.
As far as shocks, I understand OME has great shocks and springs that work together nicely. You can probabaly get some OEM shocks for your 10A. I'm sure they have the length you would need before and after your spacer lift.
