Spacer Sizes?? Revtek, Daystar, etc.

I just got the Daystar 1" top spacer installed and it lifted me about 2 inch's.

I know some spacer lifts combine top spacers and preload spacers. I was just curious about other spacer lifts and the actual size of the spacers.

Reason for this, is I am concerned about the maximimum size of top spacer that can be installed before there are problems with the strut being too long. I am pretty sure the Daystar 1" spacer is probably ok. Just checking to see how tall other manufactures are making their Top Spacer.

Yes it looks pretty good with the rear TSB, I now have 36.5 in the front and 37.25" in the back. I may add a TSB AAL to give me more "rake".

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

Manufactures make them up to 1.5" giveing a 3" lift. 1" is about the max, and even then, its possible you could wear out your ball joints quickly.

Thanks Chris. I wouldn't want to go bigger than the 1" spacer I put in. I actually would have gone with the 0.75" spacer if I had known about it.

I guess some OME Springs would have been a better route to go. I will ride with these for awhile and see how it feels. It's mostly a Mall Crawler anyway, though I do like to explore some service roads.
