No need for a multilink spacer with just an inch.
And this will sound funny, but if you use an inch spacer lift you'll actually have more ground clearance than a 1.5, 2.0, or even a 2in front and 2 3/8 rear kit.
Well in one spot anyway. Anything over an inch requires the multilink spacer to keep yur rear axle mostly centered to avoid tire rub. It does that by lowering your differential. So your 2 inch lift, has a spacer that lowers your rear differential by 2 inches. See the issue? Everything but the rear differential will be higher, but the rear differential will still be the same as stock 8.7 inches.
Of course this does prevent any extra wear on your rear CV joints and boots since they are stock lol
I've wondered if mixing parts would do it. Use a 2 inch kit, or maybe the 2" front/2 3/8 rear, and only use a 1 inch multilink spacer. That would still keep the wheels centered enough, and raise the diff an inch.
If you do the 1 3/8 inch rear, do not get the 1.5 multi link!
It might be a better solution for you to get one of the heavy duty rear springs. The King Springs are about 30% stiffer, and I think the Cusco are 10% stiffer. That with a 1 inch lift might do what you are looking for.
A saggy butt spacer won't give you any extra carrying capacity, you'll just be bottomed out higher. A lift and stiffer springs will still give you some suspension travel. The Kings are going to be very noticeable though, a little harder ride.
