Sorry

You should put the whole story, like what you're trying to accomplish, what you do with the truck, etc. The Icon coilovers will ride a lot better than the spacer lift. If you NEED new uppers, the Icons are way overpriced unless you just want that look.

Lol you guys are funny.
Theoretically there is actually nothing wrong with that 6" spacer used with a 6" drop bracket.
He should still have stock geometry in the front end.

The icon coilover will be a great upgrade though.

No one said there was anything wrong with it, I just said it was big and ugly. And honestly, if the options are a spacer or an Icon coilover kit, Icons all day.
