I'm not running wheel spacer. instead i swapped the IFS hubs & caliper with FJ40 rotors for an extra 3" width (1.5" each side) Works great and no added stress on the wheel bearings. plus you get bigger brakes with vented rotors

I got spacers up front to keep the tires off the frame.

I run 1.5" spacers on each side up front, no problems, they work great! In the rear, Ive matched the width with a 92 60" wide v6....if you get spacers, run the ones with there own lug studs comming out, so you have 12 lugs to torque per side. Ive seen some getto cheaper ones guys have bought that are 1-1.5" that slide over your existing lug studs, but of coarse you have to replace all the originals lugs with 2.5 studs. not so cool

adding the IFS hub swap matches the widetrack rear end out of an IFS rig, so if ou only need to widen the front its a really good way to go. Especially if you're doing a SAS and already have the old IFS parts laying around.
