I need to pull the trigger on a BB..............

soon, or Iam going to spend all of my dough! I would like to buy 4 new shocks that will work well with the 2" BB. I would like to buy the spacers and the bumpstops that I need. Do I need to buy a new sterring stabilizer shock? And will my 30" spare work with 32" tires? Iam not a off roader, I would just be doing this for looks. I would like to do this as cheap as I can, that is one of the reasons Iam hoping that I can use the 30" tire as a spare so I do not have to buy a 5th tire, the spare now is brand new, it has never been installed. I have seen some Tera Flex spacers that I think would work, and as far as shocks go, I looked at some Black Diamond A/T shocks and some Trailmaster shocks, both from Quadratec. I know that these are probably not what you would want for the off road, but would they work for on road? I know that I have asked all of this before, but I cannot seem to make a decision, but now I need to. If I understand correctley, the above modifications will not require anything else, is this true? Do I need to install a new speedo gear, or will this not effect it? Any and all help will be appreciated. Thanks, Scooby

i had 2" spacers with cheap rancho RS5000 shocks ans 32W tires before. the ride was better than stock.
you can use a 30" tire as a spare. but donĀ“t drive fast or too long with it. the diffs will become very hot with different tire sizes.

i've heard the skyjacker hydros aren't too bad...although i know someone on here just recently busted some.

you can run shock extenders (doubles as a BPE)

no to the SS
those shocks will be ok on road (may ride rough)
you will need a new speedo gear
you can use the spare for temporary short distances (slow speed)
may need a tcase drop
