its okay to run spacer only in the rear?

the wheels I am planning to buy are 9.5 squared,
so the setup will be, little camber in front,
10-15mm spacer in the rear,

this won't interfere with the transfer case.....can someone verify?

pretty sure it will be fine. transfer case only has to deal with the rolling diameter. but since youre running square setup youre fine, assuming youre running the same size tires all around. the spacers are only to increase width which has nothing to do with diameter

I run 15mm spacers in the rear and have zero issues.

It will further increase the vehicles tendency to understeer.
