ok ive been reading about people wanting extra inches out of there lifts. i know some people say do aftermarket coilovers and some guys do custom spacers. i just dont see how spacers can stress out the lift. if you put on coilovers dont they do the same thing.as a spacer. or is it just the way the application are put on the lift and where they go that causes the stress. please let me know. thanks gents!!!

i dont think its a matter of stressing out the "lift." its stressing out the coilover's itself. the stock coilovers offer very little damping if any (leaving you prone to bottoming and such). adding spacers will not improve the stock coilover, while aftermarkets will work wonders...

I'm a bit confused on what your trying to get at? Are you just wanting some extra lift or a performance lift?

If you want performance, get coilovers. If you want the lift for "looks" then jus get the spacers. Id recommend some coilovers.....they are nice

Just get a pair of spacers, that should be enough if you want it for looks.
