    ok so im picking up my maxtrac spindles tomorrow, may go with some bridgestone A/T 285/70 and keep my stock sport rims... will i need wheel spacers for this? the rims are 17"? correct me if wrong plz, and if i do need the spacers, whats the minimum size I can purchase to get away with doing this?

    If you keep your stock rims you WILL NEED wheel spacers. Suggestion is to ensure they are hubcentric. Spidertrax are a great choice.

    The hub is used to center the wheel instead of the lug nuts.

    The spidertrax are 1 1/4" I am running all f4 wheels with them and love the look...

    aahh i see... im 99.99% sure these will work... also i talked to a guy at a shop today that i was reffered to by the head mechanic at my dealership, and he said that spacers are a bad idea, that i would be running into problems?

    Did he tell you what problems?

    It is better to get new rims with the correct backspacing. But if you can afford those spacers are a cheaper alternative.

    no actually he didnt state the problems he just said spacers are a bad idea and suggested to get new wheels.. maybe just tryin to make more money? idk... but this truck is my daily driver and wont be taking it out off roading, does that make difference is how long these last? especially since everyone on TW recommends these

    I also have another question for you if you dont mind... since im going to run the maxtrac spindles, would a progressive 3 leaf AAL, and keeping the overload leaf in get me to level or almost level for my lift?

    Measure center of hub to bottom of fender front and rear then do the math. How much lift is the aal supposed to give you?

    awesome, spider spacers it is! as for the measuring i will certainly get on that! and the wheelers off road progressive gives you 1.5" and 2" if you leave the overload on, which is what i plan to do to get more lift

    I believe the rear is generally 2" higher than the front so if your measurements match then you would be level with 4" in front and an extra 2" in the rear...
