Anyone ever used NYLON spacers?
I was looking for a set of spacers for the front of my wife's Sequoia and came across some NYLON spacers. Most every spacer I have ever seen was either aluminum, steel or poly.

Anyone have any experience with NYLON spacers? I figured they wouldn't clunk as much as aluminum or steel typically does because its not metal on metal.

Spacers are generally frowned upon.

I've only had metal ones so I can't help you but I would just keep checking them, I have a feeling they would wear quicker but I don't know that.

Yeah I am just looking for something inexpensive until I can buy some bilsteins for the Sequoia.
I have always heard how steel/aluminum spacers "clunk" and I thought the nylon ones wouldn't make as much noise.

Never noticed mine clunking, bilsteins is always the better option according to this site.
