5100's plus spacer?

I was curious to know if anyone has put the 5100's or 3'' coil kit and added a spacer. Is it possible to put the 5100's on at 2.5 and then add a coil or top plate spacer to add more height? Thanks in advance

Get a spindle lift. It will work out better for you.

Don't do this... It won't work.

They give 4 inches of lift while maintaining a good ride.

It is basically what Toytec does with the "ultimate lift". However, the top plate spacer is kept thin to keep total lift at about 3".



Above 2.5" lift (max possible with 5100s alone), you will need UCAs to maintain caster. For PreRunners, this defeats the price advantage over spindles.
