I read on another thread that you can contact TF and they will pull together any combo spacer kit you want. I’m sure it’s a little more expensive than their premade sets, but you can get exactly what you want. I haven’t contacted them yet to verify this though.

Did the 1.5” spacers affect your handling at all? I’ve got a 20 Sahara with 33”s and thinking about a 1” spacer lift to give a little more room and I also think it will look better.
Could be placebo, but it definitely felt like it handled much better. My caster is at a little over 4% right now, so I might adjust that in the future, but overall it's been 2years, multiple off-road trips/badge trails, and I'm pretty happy.

Update if anyone cares. Took the jeep back today and on the highway ride there, I was up to 70-80, hitting bumps and only getting a little shimmy (but no DW). They took it in, inspected things and noticed my tires were worn a little weird.. and when they swapped the rear tires to the front everything went away 99%. Also asked about the springs being centered in the perches/perch hoods and he rechecked the springs and verified all was installed correctly so I guess them being perfectly centered within those perch hoods isn't necessary.

They think along with a freshly installed lift, weirdly worn tires (been a while since i had rotated) and going from the older stiffer rubi shocks to my new fox 2.0s... it was the perfect storm for DW. Also my toe was in spec, but off a little. Knock on wood its gone for good now... I'm thinking a few things settled over the weekend too so maybe that helped.

@Gangplank I measured with a half tank of gas and my front went from 36.25" to 38.5" ground to bottom of fender. I was in a hurry so didn't' check the rear, but I'd imagine all around I got 2.25-2.5" of lift, which I'm told will settle a tad. Happy with this height.

Next, its into more debt I go with buying new wheels and tires. Prob will do the toyo OC AT3 in c-load, 285/75/r17 with fifteen52 patrol HD wheels (0 offset, 4.75BS) and the shop said once I get all of this, to get an alignment and all should be good!
