Is anyone running 2.5" spacers on 1999 springs? Pics please

I have a 1999 SR5 and currently have 265/75R16 tires. Turning the wheel, it looks like I have about .5 - 1" clearance from the inner fender. Has anyone added 2.5" spacers with the 99 springs? Wondering if that would make my current tires look small and if it does, what size (larger) others use.

I had a hard enough time getting my 1" spacers in front.
I think if you crammed 2.5" spacers in there it would jack everything up. You would have to do a diff drop, new cv boots, etc. It puts a lot of stress on the lower ball joints and the cv axles/boots. I've already replaced and packed my cv boots/axles twice with the stupid 1" spacers..I'm planning on going with the bilsteins for a better setup. I wouldn't recommend cramming 2.5" spacers up front..

Good to know. Thanks for the insight. Would you recommend 1 spacers? My front sits about an inch lower. Will it level it out?
