    ok here is the deal... i ordered a whole new set up for my truck lift and wheels and tires and i need to know if i will need wheel spacers for this and if i do what size. specs are below and thank you!


    Wheels: DC2 17/9 inches 6 and 5.5 lug 4.5 backspacing
    Tires: DC Crushers 285/70/17
    Front lift: 4 inch Camburg Spindles, 2.5 Camburg coilovers and Light racing UCA's ( i know i probably should have gotten uniballs)
    Rear lift: 3 inch All Pro leaf packs 2.0 walker evans res. shocks and a wheelers add a leaf if i decide to adjust the front shocks and go bigger.

    another question will the rear shocks be able to go higher then 4 inches with out bottoming out?:confused:

    You will not need wheel spacers for that setup.

    I don't think you will be able to use the Wheelers Add-A-Leaf with the All Pro Leaf Packs due to the design. I spoke with All Pro about this when I purchased my All Pro Expedition Leaf Pack and they told me that I won't be able to run an Add-a-leaf. The only option I have is install a block. Just an FYI the 3" standard leaf will probably not get you level with the front spindles and you might have some bro lean in the rear. My new expedition leafs only lifted my rear around 3 1/4" and not 4". I might install a 1" block later and some Spidertrax spacers in the rear to even out with the front if I decide to go higher.

    As far as your wheel size, I am running 18x9 KMC Monsters with 4.5 Backspacing and -12mm offset. I am running 285/65/R18 Nittos Terra Grapplers and I have no problem with rubbing the fenders or the calipers, and I am not running spacers. My front wheels are pushed out about 3/4" after I installed the spindles.

    The LR UCAs are a nice UCA and I had no problem with them. They have Camber and Caster adjustment whereas my TC UCAs do not. The LR UCAs have a boot that keeps the grease in and grime from getting into the ball joint, whereas the TC UCAs and other uniball UCAs have to have a little more maintenance because they are exposed to the elements. You can always upgrade later if need be like I did. The only reason I upgraded was because I got a package deal from ORW with the Fox CO's, rear shocks and TC UCAs.

    Here is my spindle setup. I just finished over the weekend. I have my CO's set around .75" for around 4.75" of front lift. I really couldn't go higher unless I wanted the bro lean.
