Nope. I personally got offered spacers for free and turned them down. I would rather have a stock height truck than a crappy riding slightly lifted truck.

Definitely not, from experience. I had them on for about 48 hours before they came off. Look into Bilstein 5100's.

But then you are putting junk in your truck. Why not just skip the junk and save until you have money for at least 5100s? Is there a lift race going on that I don't know about?

Not to be confused with junk in your trunk... Way different

Don't talk yourself into spacers because they are cheap, your ride will suffer.

Ok. So leveling kits are junk like we all have been saying. They look like a lifted truck so there is no difference in looks between the lift and the leveling kit.

there is also 2 different kinds of spacers, one of which doesn't change the ride.

OP have a read over this... all your questions will be answered!
