    I already have the leveling spacers that go on top(not installed yet). I was just wondering if it's possible to also add the leveling spacers that go on the bottom? Is there a reason it should'nt be done? Thanks guys.

    It's always bad news when trying to mix lift or lowering kits, the biggest problem is putting the suspension out of its operating limits, which leads to parts operating out of design standards, which leads to premature parts failure, which sometimes can be catastrophic and cause loss of control with bad results.

    I'd recommend you stick with one leveling kit or the other, if you feel the need to lift the truck higher then you should look at kits specifically designed to do that modification. When and if you decide to lift you should do that modification without the leveling kit on because again you'll be putting parts out of their design standard.

    Some companies use a combination of upper/lower spacers, so there's not necessarily an issue. The problem comes when you go too far. The short answer is yes, it can be done. But don't go over 2.5", which would be 1.25" worth of spacers.
