I am really interested in doing this as well...

I am just using random spacer sizes but I think you get the point. That is why I am going to hold off on getting spacers.
Keep in mind buddster swapped his tires to a 255 front and 295 rear Yokohama AD08 setup, which changes spacer requirements. Those keeping the stock tires will need a bit more aggressive setup.
