Do you guys think a 2'' wheel spacer on the rear axle to help even up track width is excessive on a 2" over LT kit? Basically would return the trackwidth ratio to stock.

I would stick to 1.5" or less. Anything over 1.5" spacer wise scares me.

Bigger spacer... more leverage... its up to you and how wide you want your track width to be, what you want tire wear to look like, how hard you want to be on your bearings and seals, etc. everyone says 1.5" and they have wider kits than you,so its more than likely unnecessary.

Fuck ZZR lol. I gave him one last shot like two months ago...asked him to weld together a BAMF shock tower kit...and 'said' I wanted him to do the fab work to the truck...he sat on the kit for a month...told me it was done and ready for install...I kept asking for pic's of the finished towers...he kept asking why and then just not responding...I finally drove down to pick up the finished kits and was just gonna pay the difference(BAMF kit welded vs. unwelded) he literally avoided me at his own house for like 20 minutes and then when I finally cornered him asking for the kits he gets super pissy and basically throws my backpack(with the untouched kit) at me and says goodbye. He was angry because I hadn't payed him at all...I just kept asking him what he wanted to be paid for...for storing some metal lol??? Then he kept insisting he could weld up the kit in 30-45 minutes...

My favorite line was when I said "Zip, what have you done so far" "I've almost got it tacked up"..."Wait, you have it tacked or you don't?"..."Well, almost, it'll only take me like half an hour to get it all done"...

Buh-bye...I realize he's a shitty garage fab, but hey...I try to support local fabricators. But fuck man, he just digs himself a hole endlessly.
