    Recently I replaced my stock coils with OME 887s to go with my Bilstien 5100s.
    I used a 1/4 top plate spacer on the Drivers side but i still have a 1/2" difference in level from side to side.
    I'm just about to pull the trigger on a 1/2" top plate spacer from Wheelers but was wondering if I will be needing longer studs to accomidate it.

    This is what its currently looking like


    Thanks Tacoworld!

    Looks like you have more than .25" of thread free, but do you have .25" plus 3 threads?
    Are you doing the rear also?

    I'm assuming these would be them?
    No the rear is fine.
    Just need another 1/2" (total) on the driver side to match the level of the passenger side(no spacer).

    No, I'm just switching from a 1/4" spacer to a 1/2" spacer to level it.The 1/4"wasn't enough after putting the 887s on.
