Is the lift a short arm lift cause then I wouldnt recomend it? Meaning the control arms are about the same length of stock. Why not look into a body lift?

Anything bigger than 4" on a short arm kit and you're going to have problems with drivability.

What is your goal your looking for or to get out of it???

Better off with a Body Lift if you want more clearance.

A 4" lift w/ 2" spacers will be a harsh angle for the the Control Arms especially if it's a Short Arm kit. If going this route would need brake lines, shocks, SYE & Rear DS, probably steering upgrades, (Pitman Arm & Droped Trackbar mount).
