Adding Extra 1/2" to 2" Lift

I have a Teraflex 2" lift on my '06, and possibly want to add a little extra lift in the front to get the stance I want. I would get the Rusty's 1/2" spacer. Would this be pushing the limits on the max height of the front?
-PS, sorry if this has already been asked.

no expert here, but i've heard 2.25 was what some manufacturer found to be the point at where CV joints started taking excess wear.

Mine is a 2wd. Any other concerns that you know of?

I have the 2.25 rro lift and I've been considering the extra 1/2 to level it out more. I had a conversation with a grand Cherokee owner who had a custom 3" spacer lift and I too ltold him about going over the 2.25 mark and he said he never had to change a cv

Does the Rocky Road 2.25 spacer kit level the front and rear? Want to do it right the first time.
