The most agreed upon height is 1.5", it is possible to go higher but you run the risk of wearing out front end parts such as cv shafts and ball joints.

agreed.....1.5" seems to be the upper limit before you tear up your front end.

i did 1.5" and my cv boots slipped off, luckily i caught it and was able to fix it for cheap. other than that no issues at all....an alignment is a must afterwords.

You've gone through CV joints, hubs and ball joints like Charlie Sheen through cigarettes is what you mean...
