I had spacers back in the 80s on the front of a truck. It turned out horrible. Good luck.

I sold some parts I was hanging onto for my motorcycle for $600, and that was burning a hole in my pocket.

I just put a new set of leaf springs on order for my truck: http://www.generalspringkc.com/product_p/69-149.htm

I'll finally have 3/4-ton rear springs again.

Since I already had my wallet open, I got the BellTech rear sway bar, too: http://www.ebay.com/itm/380876476022

Be careful with those spacers, A guy I know had them on his explorer and the studs all tore out on one of them.

Install errors can do that. Follow the directions to a T and they are safe. Also use the correct lug nuts, that is essential.

Directions are for pussies.

thats gonna be a good weekend project. let me know if the sway bar is really bolt and go..........i read somewhere that the early model trucks needed to have a hole drilled in the frame for the end link bars, but i have not looked under mine yet. do the new rear springs come with poly bushings?

those spacers are a lot of added reciprocating mass, even though they arent heavy. i wonder if they were balanced after they were cut?

Haha! I use directions to figure out where I screwed up!

Sprayed my manifolds down a couple times with a penetrating oil today. Headers scheduled for tomorrow so there should be an 18 pound box from Amazon waiting at the end of the driveway when I get home from work tomorrow.

And now back to school work...
