I've wheeled a BB for a long while. It's a good way to see which direction you want to go. Have fun. I replaced my springs and shocks at the same time and added quick disconnects.

Don't worry about the front, the stock shocks will bottom out and stop you...

2" longer will work a lot better, you might want to ask around a little more, you might be better off with 2 1/2" longer or maybe even 3", I'm sure someone will jump in and let you know.

squeak alot? I have a 1" spacer on my lift in the front now and never a squeak. Never made a noise with the BB either.
