the difference is i've never heard of anyone sheering studs on the spidertrax. quality is quality and u get what u pay for. how about a 3" spacer lift over a 3" CO lift? the spacer is cheaper and still provides the 3" of reauired lift, so they're the same thing right?

there is another thread on here about a guy breaking a stud on a spidertrax spacer, but he didnt use a torque wrench to put the lugs on and more than likely overtorqued the shit out of them. he said he did it until it didnt move anymore

I just bought a pair of Spider Trax spacers to hold me over until I can afford wheels. I did a search, and found a few threads on the All-Pro spacers being not good, and the exact same spacers are sold over at Marlin Crawler, and all over Ebay.

I can't say if anybody elses spacers are bad, but I got the Spider Trax just in case! If yoy need any prodding towards the Spider Trax, here you go.

Well as far as the spacer itself goes, aluminum is aluminum. And as far as teh studs go, grade 8 is grade 8. I don't see how one can be different from another. Chris where are you, lol?

AP UCA's and TC UCA's are not created equal.....same metal, same uniballs, not the same part

IF they are the same metal, same uniballs, and same bushings as long as the jig is the same shape then yes they are the same part. But since patents do exist I am sure there is a difference of some kind in the design and one may be better.
For that matter though I have never heard of anyone breaking an AP UCA.

I am not trying to be confrontational I am just interested in saving some money. Nobody has been able to tell me the difference conclusively.

Spider Trax or any other that uses a spacer with studs pressed into it is Flawed by design.These have a stud pressed into aluminum with a hole next to each stud. The design criteria is to keep you from having to knock out the studs in the rotor and put in a longer stud.

A better design is to put in a longer stud,then you place the ' spacer" over the new longer studs. When you torque it up the spacer is in compression and only the studs are holding the wheel on. This is how Toyota designed it to work.

Spider trax are adapters not spacers

If you take out the old stud you have to remove the rotor and press or push them out ( I use a Hammer to Push them out). it's not that hard.

Measure the old stud, buy new longer stud, buy spacer and you have a Jerry Rig that is better. It is always better not to have spacers or adapters on wheels!!!

Link to "spacers" they also sell "adapters
http://www.ezaccessory.com/Wheel_Spacers_s/27.htm

I own a set of Adapters that i will use if I have rubbing on new wheels/ rims on UCA until I can get spacers and longer studs that will fix the rubbing on UCA.

Studs set in aluminum with a hole next to it on both sides cant be good.I don't care if it is T6.

I wonder if that has anything to do with the fact those were lug-centric apdaters instead of hub-cenctric?
