Spacer Question
 
i was wondering how big of a tire i can fit if i were to get the 3 inch spacer and can i also run the bilstein 5100s with the spacer ?
my goal is for my tires to fill up the wheel wells and give it a drooping kind of look

1st off do you off road? Cause if you do Spacers are NOT the way to go. I'd just set the Bilstein 5100s at 2.5" up front and getta 1.5" AAL then run a 285/75/16

OP , do you mean you want to get spacers AND use the 5100's for lifting as well ?

Drooping look? what the hell is that?

Oh, and 285's are the biggest you can go with 3", but you'll have to do some fender trimming and a cab mount chop. And dont combine a spacer with 5100's.

Don't do spacers unless you want your truck to ride like crap...

i only want to put this on temporary for a couple weeks and then i am putting on dz adjustable coils and the camburg uni ball a-arm with the deaver 44 in the rear.. and then i have been debating going hankook or kumo

Tacomanator 06-30-2011 10:05 PM

then save the money and wait the couple of weeks :crazy:

I understand what yals reason is for not liking spacers in the front, but I have the Daystar lift with spacers in the front aal's in the back. And my ride quality improved if anything. Definitely not worse.

WTF is dz? You mean these? Here maybe this will help you http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/these :cool:

Why get a lift that you are going to use for a couple of weeks? :notsure:

I wouldn't do the spacers and 5100s. I'd get two sets of spacers and stack them on top of each other. You might need to disconnect your UCA but that doesn't matter, it doesn't really do anything anyway.



















Please don't actually do that.

How about a 6'' fabtech with a coilover adjusted 2.5'' higher with a 3" body spacer?
