I'm running the Tuff Country steel spacers on my '00 Quad. So far so good, and gives the truck an awesome stance with my 285s. I believe up to a 305-75 would fit with the right rims now. Best of luck, Im a little leery of molded spaces but many people run 'em.

i was told longer shocks werent needed but when installing the daystars i found out you do need them. it does look better with them on but ive been hauling alot of weight lately and it looks bad when it sags alot. i might add 2 inch add-a-leafs in the rear. its only like 50 bucks and im buying new rear shocks anyway.

What a bunch of sh*t....I called them to order the spacer and they aren't coming out until next month because they were priced wrong in the catalog(24.95). The guy I talked to said they are actually going to go for about 240.00. Damn it...thought it was going to be an awesome deal :burning: :burning: :burning:

what kind of nut job would pay $240 for coil spacers?.. I hope summit doesn't plan on making too much money off them.

Oh, and I think 2500 coils are the way to go for a leveling kit!

I have had the Daystar spacers and the Skyjacker coils and hands down I recommend the coils. You get the same lift but they also improve the ride quality.

I already have the 5" Skyjacker lift...so for that price I will just get the 7" coils...I just thought if they were 25 bucks you couldn't beat it.

At what point during the installation did you realize that you needed longer shocks? I am running mine with stock shocks and don't have a problem. The only time I notice them is when I blast through a sippy and hit a deep rut and I can feel them bottoming out but that's it.

I just noticed that the original question was if a 2 inch leveling kit would eliminate rubbing with 285's... The rubbing is on the lower link arms, so to get rid of that you either need new rims or a wheel spacer. The leveling kit isn't necessary. I don't really trust wheel spacers, so I'd say get new rims.

Actually I think he has to sell them for the posted price. At a department store if it's marked wrong it's on the seller not the buyer, not sure how mail catalogs are tho'....I'd get a little heavy with him and I'll bet he'll cave........

I'm running the 3" SkyJacker coils and 2" superlift spacers and had to go to longer shocks beacause of wheelin, if it's for the road, you may not have to. I didn't have a problem until I wheeled mine with the shorter SkyJacker shocks, then they topped out and I replaced them with longer SSV's....no problem since.....
