If you run both (3" spring/A arms + any spacer)your truck will ride horrible. It will be for looks only. When you take a truck with that set up off road or even go over some railroad tracks at 50 mph your truck will top out terribly and you will finally understand what theses people are trying to warn you about. The wheels will not be able to drop down because the upper A-arm slams gainst its bumpstop(even a low profile bump stop). It will fit but no professional shop would install it for you because its whack.

Alright listen up you idiots the only way to combine the 2 inch
lift springs and the 2 inch spacer properly is to remount the
upper upper ball joint below the stock arm instead of above it
that way the arm sits higher so you still have up travel as well
as down travel for a smoother ride. Very simple procedure and
gives you about 4 inches of lift without having to buy the
fabtech arms

you are completely right jack! i did the same procedure with my truck when i installed lift coils and two inch spacers and i noticed how much higher the upper control arm sits when you remount the upper ball joint. i would have never thought of that. thank you for the advice. hopefully others will pick up on this for an easy cheap way to lift your 2wd dakota
