    Cons of top plate spacers include allowing the suspension to droop 2.5" more than it is was designed to do, leading to ball joint damage. Also, by just lengthening the whole shock assembly, you will redner your bump stops useless and bottom out the shocks before you woudl hit the bumps.

    It's a fairly poor choice of lift if your truck ever leaves the pavement.
