    Hellow fellow TW members. Like the title says is the revtek front preload spacer a 3 inch or more like a 2.5 inch? The reason I'm asking is because I will be installing the OME CS047R rears on the back of my DC. I'm aware of the rear mesurements of how much the rear will lift do to other threads. In 6 months or so, I would like to junk the spacers and put the Toytec #TTAFCS-HA adjustible coilovers on the front, because I'm running the billys on the rear and dont do to much wheeling, I am going to keep the truck all Bilstein. OME makes a great system and great product but to late for that. This truck is my DD with slight wheeling a few times in 3 months. Toytec says the front billys are a full 3 inches. Would the fronts be higher than the Revtek? I was just curious what your thoughts were on the spacers as far as lift compared to the rear with the new springs? Maybe I should search more, But any info would be more than helpful. Anybody run Revtek fronts with the OME rears? Thanks again!!

    Revtek is 3" by combing a top plate with a preload.

    They come together if you order new from some revtek supplier.

    If you're just buying the preload half from someone used, that's not 3"

    Gotcha, I bought the pickup used from a Ford dealer here in town a year ago. It def has the Revtek spacer. not sure about top plate? Crap let me look real fast.......... Ya Its got the top plate spacer too! Ok So that is covered, I guess my question is will the toytec 3 inch billys be just as tall?

    You can call me Susan if it makes you happy.
    So do you not want any rake or what? From the sounds of it your gonna junk the spacer anyway and go with the coilovers so then whats the issue?? The coilovers will be 235134523452 times better then the crappy revtek why not just call whoever your gonna be ordering them from and go from there.... If there not a true 3 inches then bump up to a set of SAW coilovers they are 0-3.5 and closer in price then fox, king, or icon....

    Thanks for the info, yes I want the rake so it will sit more level when hauling loads etc. I guess my question would be will the front billys sit higher than the revtek, but i guess my question has been answered. The front billys will be the same height as the revtek. Anyone have any pics of a Revtek front with OME dakars in the rear? Thanks everyone for the info.

    If anything, with brand new front springs, the Toytec will sit a little higher than what you have now.
