How does the 3 inch lift kits for our trucks work exactly? A 3 inch spacer lift seems to consist of an approximately 1.5 inch thick spacer. I am assuming that this is due to the position of the strut on the LCA. If this is the case, and I believe that it is, then if the bottom end of the strut was closer to the wheel then the spacer would need to be thicker. And, if the bottom end of the strut was further away from the wheel then the spacer would need to be thinner. It is all relative to the angle of the strut on the LCA, correct? If you guys could verify this for me I'd appreciate it.
Does anyone have any good sources that explain how this works? I am trying to write a paper on this for school; a legitimate source to back up my explanations would be awesome.
