    Yes, the JL spacers will work.

    which JL Spacers do you suggest? also, to balance the front of my sport S will this affect my stock smooth ride? also will wheel spacers ruin any thing with the stock ride?

    I put a spacer level on my GMC Sierra with no change whatsoever on the ride quality; just took a day or so to get used to new angle of view from windshield. I plan on alloy USA 1.5” level once I take delivery (hopefully this week).

    Alloy, Rough Country and Daystar have front leveling kits for the JL/JT. Have the Daystar lift and ride quality to me is great. Don't think you'll notice any difference with wheel spacers installed.

    1.5" will make your truck pretty much dead level. I like the Daystar poly spacers over the Rough Country ones I had on the JL, but either will work fine.

    Teraflex is now offering a level kit that it appears can be set to 1/2", 1", 1.5"

    Opinions vary on how the ride is. Most of the spacer kits are inexpensive and easy to install. Can always remove if not to your liking.

    Has anyone installed this Teraflex 1.5" leveling kit yet?
    If so, opinions and pictures would be appreciated.

    A reasonable spacer lift will not ruin your ride. If it’s more than an inch, I feel it should also include shock spacers or new shocks (which could impact ride quality if too stiff or too soft). Otherwise, you will not have as much suspension down-travel.

    I installed the Teraflex leveling kit last weekend. I went with the 1" spacer. If I add a front bumper and winch in the future, I may add the .5" spacer. I've noticed no change in ride quality.

    Pics?
    Also, what was your reason to just add the 1" spacer and not the combined 1" + 0.5" spacer?
