1/2" Front Top Plate Spacer Kit

I'm looking for a cheap way to level the front of my truck to equal the rear. Someone on the forum recommended the Toytec 1/2" front top spacer plate. Can this be installed without compressing the coil? I don't have a spring compressor and I'd hate to spend more money paying a local shop to compress the spring than I'd be spending on the plates. It's my understanding that these get installed on top of the top plate. When I downloaded instructions it shows compressing the coil.

Thanks.

The 1/4" and 1/2" spacers are just placed on top of the Strut Assembly. You will just have to unmount the Strut, remove the stock mounting bolts, stack the Spacer, and reattach.

That's how I understand it.

The single 1/4 inch top plate spacer can be used with your stock top bolts. The Top Plate Spacer Kit is a 1/2 inch spacer which requires the longer bolts included with that kit

Nope the rubber springs isolators should stay in the assembly. These go on top of the shock top plate.

You have to compress the coils to remove old bolts and replace them with the longer ones with the 1/2 inch kit. The 1/4 uses the stock bolts so no compression needed.
