spacer lift plus a suspension lift?
 
Does anyone know if you can run a Daystar 2" spacer lift AND an OME 2" HD suspension lift together? I've currently got the OME HD 2" lift, 3/8" front strut spacers, the pinch weld mod done, 1.5" spacers and 265/70/17's and need just a little more clearance to have my wheels clear the front fender wells when I bottom out.

It is not recommended. Geometry of the drive train will change significantly. Angles of the drive shaft will be out of specs so modification is required (dropping gear box and TC ).

The main problem is the geometry of the CVs and the steering rack. Since it's IFS, the driveshaft from the TC to the front diff does not change unless you have a Superlift. Anyways, I would actually not go much higher if any than your current set up. If you want more lift, the next option is the Superlift.
