I also put new isolators on my coils from Wheelers, and they were pretty thick and may have made installation a little harder also. Right now my truck is at 3.5 inches over stock, it's a 4 cyl. Ac 4WD - I don't think it's going to settle much. The hub to fender well measurement is right at 23.5 on both sides,a little more than I wanted. Good luck,somebody on here should have some good tips on installing them for you.
Thanks man I appreciate it. Did you use the bottle jack idea to lower your upper and lower control arm? I haven't tried that but will. It's the only way I think I might be able to get the spacers on that side. I stood on that lca, jumped on it etc and it just wouldn't move to the point where I could run the spacers.
Got any pics?

Thanks,

Brett
