Thread: Spring spacers?

  1. #1

    Default Spring spacers?

    I've got a 6" pro comp lift on my 2005 Tahoe. I'm looking to raise the rear which is on coil springs.. never used the spacers on any of my trucks but like most have heard mixed reviews about them. I'm just looking for another 1 1/2" - 2" just to level it back out.. Don't know if all spacers would fit those springs as far as width??

    Any input would be greatly appreciated!

    New springs should not be all that expensive. I know a stock height springs from Bilstein are $36 each. I would just look into buying new springs.

    I looked into it alittle, check this out: http://www.autopartswarehouse.com/mm...ngs~parts.html looks to be about $190 for new springs. It is a considerable amount more than $50 for spacers.

    I thought about that, but couldn't find a different set to work with specifically the pro comp.. I just don't wanna order spacers or new springs and them not fit or not raise it any

    I would use a set of lift blocks before I would go cramming stuff into the springs. Maybe a set of good coil over shocks with some lift blocks... Just my .02.
