This was my first ever post on this forum. I couldn't figure out how to get back to this thread after I posted it. Ha! Rookie mistake.
Thank you all for the input, it is much appreciated. Sometimes you go down the wormhole of forums and it doesn't give you the exact answer to the question you have. Again, thank you all.
After more research... I decided to send back the 2" lift kit and get the 1 1/2" instead, to be on the safe side and not cause any problems with other suspension components. Once I install it will be sitting at 1 3/4" in the front and 2" in the back. The kit comes with subframe spacers as well, so after the install I would assume my back wheel should be centered. Without the kit installed, the back wheel is already slightly more forward from the .5" rear overload springs I installed.
Now I'm debating between 215/65/16s OR 215/70/16s. I also changed my mind from the BF Goodrich KO2s to am likely going to get the General Grabber AT2s. I ended up buying the Sparco Terra 16" wheels. Last step is to install the lift kit and buy the tires.
