I found a place locally that sells and installs the 2 inch Daystar spacers. $250 for the spacers and $60 to install them. Has anyone heard anything bad about them? Daystar emailed me and said that I do not need new shocks for my truck. I might run just the 2 inch spacers or possibly add rear add-a-leafs later. Has anyone heard of any problems with the Daystars?

i have them on my truck for about 2 months now. havent had a problem yet. im still running the stock shocks. if you want, i can get the spacers for you for $150. they arent hard to install at all. i would recomend doing it yourself if you have some basic tools and a jack.

i bought mine for $160 dollars, heres the link: http://www.central4wd.com/store/itemdetail.asp?ID=4007
the pic shows them in yellow but mine came in black. havent had any problems with them yet, had em on for about 4 thousand miles. the place that installed mine had to get 2 inch longer shocks for them. when i said that daystar told me i didnt need longer shocks they told me to call them up and ***** them out because you do, but maybe thats just for the off-road. it makes sense though, 2 inches of lift = 2 inch longer shocks.

I am planning on putting daystars on my 1500 4x4, the question is how big of a tire would i be able to fit? I will be getting 15x8 rims soon,but for now would my stock rims and my 265/75r16 tires look ok? im am also getting new shocks in the front but not in the rear would my truck still ride ok?thanks for any info. chris..

with the daystars you could probably run 285/75's. i have 305/70's (33's) but with the offroad package and the daystars im 3 inches over your stock ram. i had to buy 2 inch longer shocks even though the idiots at daystar said i didnt. if you think about it, if the shocks have to reack 2 more inches to make up for the daystars then theyll have to be 2 inches longer. anyways, i still have the stockers in the back and it rides fine. you wont have to replace those unless theyre getting worn out. i bought trailmaster shocks for my front and i cant tell much difference on the street between those and the stock off-road shocks.

Hey Canyonero02, what are the chances of a truck set up like yours (Off-Road with only the daystars) handling 35in's on the stock rims?

I have a stock 99 1500 4X4 and I'm already running 285/75's with no problems. I just bought a set of Daystars, but not because I needed the clearance. I just hate the way stock front ends sag so I wanted to level it out.
