Rear Before: 40.25

Where were you finding the ride more rough? All around? Or the rear?
I want to put the spacer in the rear too. 1.5" But I heard I should get the 1" longer bilsteins for the rear as I'll be maxing out the stock shocks adding 1.5" to the coils?

You plan on putting longer shocks in the rear?

I have stock shocks on the rear but had the same setup on my 2012 RAM. It feels stiff and I can feel every imperfection in the road. I'm going to put the spacers on top of the bilsteins and move the bilsteins down to .7" to offset the spacers. With the Bilsteins not at full extension the ride is better (at least it was on my 2012 ram with the front spacer on the bilstein.)

You notice that much of a difference? I have them at 2.1 and it BARELY feels different than stock. Also I thought I remember reading somewhere it is not recommended to combine bilsteins with front spacers... Why? I have no idea.
