    I got my Revtek spacer lift and i gotta say i am very impressed. I dont know what you guys were going off about, these things are pretty nice, the suspension is a little stiffer which is what i wanted because it takes turns alot better now, and i do get alittle vibration when i take off but thats probably nothing and im not complaining. But this lift is temporary, later on im gonna do 4 bilstein 5100s or maybe a 6 inch lift if i can save up

    Well I guess as long as you like it that is what matters. I just didn't see the reasoning of buying a temporary lift for $800. You are already planning 5100s or a six inch lift. The $800 would have already paid for the 5100s or could have been saved toward your six inch kit.

    well my dad payed for all of it as a moving away gift, but when i say temporary i mean like 4 years down the road probably or something. but like i said before, i feel blessed and thankful that my Dad provided me with a lift. But im gonna work harder in helping us move to show my appreciation.

    At least you appreciate what has been given to you. Not many kids (no offense) understand how hard people work to earn their money. Kudos to you. :proposetoast:

    Would it be an easy install, like easy enough for me to do? by the way you look like you made some great carrier bearing spacers

    yeah bro....easy as pie. loosen both bolts that hold the bearing on....take one out...put spacer in....screw bolt back in a bit..then do other side...then tighten them up. here is the write up i did on them...

    that does sound like an easy install, but your thread said you had vibrations at 40-55 mph speeds, mine are right when you accelerate from a dead stop, know it cant be my bed is bouncing because i know what it feels like and my leaf springs arent that strong enough to bounce the bed :eek:

    well man....i sent out a ton of spacers to people for vibes at different speeds.......taking off,slowing down,low speed,high speed.....and all of them said the spacers eliminated the vibes....so i dont think your case will be any different. just let me know if you want them.
