    Look into an OME set up. Spacers can affect the ride quite a bit, and when used on the rear, the blocks can exacerbate axel wrap, and wear the springs more rapidly.

    Add a second transmission to get optimum performance.

    I have a top plate spacer up front. My ride is still great. Its a top plate spacer tho. 2.5''. I believe rev tecs are coil spacers. Might be a little stiffer.

    If you want spacers try toytec or readylift, better quality. If you want 3" try Toytec ULK, or OME lift. 6" look at fabtech or pro comp. Just my $.02

    Correct. The Revtec preloads the spring, giving a more firm ride.

    Thanks sir. Im actually wanting to get 5100's now. Im not actually for spacers.(even tho I have one.) Like I said I had just gotten the full tsb done with new factory bilsteins all around and so I thought well hell might as well get some use out of them, so I bought the daystar kit for a hondo... That was over a year ago, lookin to upgrade now and do it right
