    I have searched and read about the spacer lift for a while now and i have not found a legit reason why everyone rather get adjustable 5100's all around.. they all say "dont get them, you'll regret it"... could someone please let me know why its so bad?:confused: does it mess up parts in the long run, massive tire wear...? i dont mind spending the money to get the adjustable 5100's but if i dont have to, why spend the cash:rolleyes:

    It gives the truck a VERY harsh ride, and almost every person I've talked to say they hate the ride of a spacer lift, and wish they would have gone with something different. ;)

    Think of riding in a golf cart, that's how it felt when I rode in one.

    I have a Readylift spacer lift w/ AAL in the rear, and it is an awesome ride...I drive 30 miles hwy each way everyday to work at 70-75 mph...and on the weekends do stop-n-go... I would have gone with something different, but that's all that exists for my truck save for a full blwn long-travel kit (5-lug).

    i have a spacer lift. it rides pretty rough. cost me $250. a set of four bilsteins costs around $280 something with your discount. aal about $77 from wheeler's. bilsteins are adjustable, ride better, and last longer. spacer lifts just suck

    Their prices are already cheap. Even with the discount, I can't see them being more expensive than what they charge up here.

    Full front and back Billies with shipping is $419 CAD.

    Even if he charged $60 shipping to Canada, with the exchange rate it still works out to $374.35.
