    I just receive my spacers. I thought I had ordered the 13mm (3/4"-78") blocks, but here is what came. Is this a mistake and should I send them back, or is this what they're supposed to be? I'm going to call them tomorrow, just want to see what you all think.

    MY order email confirmation.

    It looks like tthe part numbers are the same, but the price is different, and the size is different. Seems like i got the 1/2". I was supposed to get the 3/4"-7/8"

    the 1/2" spacer lifts the truck 3/4-7/8"

    Straight from wheelers website: A machined aluminum spacer pair, 1/2" thick. For your front suspension. Stackable. Fits on top of the upper strut plate. Requires longer stud set shown below. Provides approx 3/4"-7/8" lift.

    Well, I started with stock coils and 5100's set at 2.5. Now I put on the 885's with the 5100's set at 0. Now I'll put the spacers on. Won't that sit the same as those?

    i got 3.5" of lift up front from the 885x and OME shocks(regcab) you should get about an inch or so less than I did because you have the extra weight of the V6 and DC. The new 885x's are sag resistant but you very well may end up with 3" of lift in which case you'll need new UCAs

    Not enough.
