First off, you are correct, you can add the spacer to gain some extra lift, however, in order to do that, you have to also add new Upper Control Arm's(UCA) as the stock ones will interfere with the coilbuckets once you add the spacer.Hawaiianbasshead said:so I have a 4wd and from what I've read on here, I can throw a custom spacer on top of the shocks up front to gain a little more lift. So I'm wondering what kind of extra lift I'd get out of that, what would the final stance be?...
Second, if you just have the "Stage 1" kit, which utilizes the stock coilover and a 6" spacer, it is NOT recommended to stack one spacer ontop of another (see pic below of what could happen). If you have an aftermarket coilover, then go ahead and get the 'custom' spacer from Greg. He reports that 1-1/2" additional lift can be gained on the Fabtech kit using this method.
For reference, I have attached a pic of the broken stock UCA from stacking spacers, as well as former site member 'SmokenMini' who had a 6" PC kit with the custom spacer, ProComp Stage 2 C/O's, and Total Chaos UCA's. This was combined with 36x13.50" Super Swampers on 20x10 Moto Metal 951's. It was a sweet setup, and I do believe he did some trimming to the pinch weld. Not certain of his backspace/offset though.
