Do I need a 1/4" top spacer?

    So I posted this in "Suspension", and got no response, so I'll try here.


    I've got the billies, and am planning on setting them at 2.5. I have the 2" AAL. I also have some 7089's. As of now, I'm planning on going with 285/75/16's. Initially, I was just gonna level it and go with 265's, but I'm leaning more towards the 285's, but already have all the components listed above. (Wish I would've just gone with the OME 3" lift :()



    Will I need to get the 1/4in top plate on top of my billies in order to run the 285's? I know the tires will fit, it's just will adding the spacer require less trimming? Also I don't plan on doing UCA's anytime soon. I don't wanna F' anything up, so will I be ok?

    will adding the spacer on top of the billies make it nose high with the 2'' AAL?

    Again, I know this setup is probably less than ideal, but it's all I have to work with.

    Eibach coils. 5100's all around. AAL. WickedFlow
    I've got a similar lift, eibachs and 5100's set at .85. Gave me about 2.5 inches. And I used the top plate spacer on driver side. Tires are 285/70/17. On 4.25 backspace wheel. Minor trimming. Still rub on front flaps in reverse. 2inch AAL. Here's a pic. Pretty level to me.

    that looks tough

    BTW, I was thinking about putting the spacers on top of both shocks.

    You can do that set up and you should be fine. You will still need to trim.
    Also you'd really want to get UCA's. But for the time being? Just rotate your tires every 3K miles, and watch for excessive wear.
