That really looks much better than factory, I guess I now have another project.

Hi,
Yeah, i like the way it looks much better too. I think it also rides better - feels a little more stable. Only spacers on back (1.5 inch), none on front.

Good luck with your project.

Hopefully I will get the better ride feel as well. I ordered a 1.5" set for the back this morning. I know it will look much better.

I'm running a set of 1.5 on the rear of mine. Hasn't been as long as most but I haven't had an issue yet. As long as you line everything up good before tightening and using lock tight is the key I think... and torque

Can I get some more input on using lock tight when installing these spacers?
I haven't noticed anyone else saying to use it or saying that they used it.
I have noticed some saying that they should be re torqued after a period of time, but if I use lock tight then there should be no need to re torque. So that makes me wonder if I should be using the lock tight at all.
Thanks in advance.

I used lock tight on the nuts that hold the spacer in as extra insurance. I thought it would help with making sure they don't come loose after torquing.

Forgot to mention the main reason I use lock tight is my spacers are not hub-centric(disappointed but for the price I wasn't picky)
