    I ran a spacer kit for a few months on my truck and please hear me out. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY. i bought spacers thinking this is going to be cheaper. boy was i wrong i have fucked up mutiple things on my front end by running spacers and now i am faced with buying 5100 and welding parts in the front that broke from stress. Just buy the 5100 they arnt that much more.

    i have 2" toytec spacers up front and 1" blocks in the rear. rides like stock and no problems so far. i think its important to get spacers that go Inside the coil as opposed to top spacers. top mounts are the ones that can break your truck.

    Don't do it! : P

    You'll end up wasting more money in the long run. If you're doing it because its cheaper just save up some more.

    Spacer lifts don't always mess crap up, but you wouldn't want to be the one of the few that has to fix something because of it later on down the road.

    Probably 80% of people on here will say just go with the billies. It's for a reason too! :p

    But in the end the choice is yours.

    ^This mentality is what prompts some of the us to dump $10k into mods. :laugh:

    I have that same lift and im running them on my stock bilsteins.Now im just waiting on some money to get bigger tires and new shocks.The ride quality decreased substantually, but it gives you a cheap lift. Hope this helps your decision.
