Guys,

I wanted to know if there is a difference in length in the spacers made by Calmini, Daystar, Auto Spring Kits & Top Gun Customz. Did anyone mesure the spacer? Does anyone have those mesurements?

Thanks,

JJ

I don't know if anyone has, but there are also some companies in there that I didn't know made spacer kits and don't know of anyone with them (Auto Spring Kits and Top Gun Customz).

I know Calmini makes two different sized spacers. one for 4x4 and a longer one for 4x2's.

If you have a 4x4 don't buy the 4x2 spacers as they cause problems. Ask Xterror.

The Top Gun one says 2" lift. The Calmini says 2.5-3" lift.

I can't believe Calmini wants $175 for their aluminum spacer. Do you know how rediculously easy it is to make those? Chop off some round bar, square up the ends on a mill, drill the center hole, drill & counterbore the holes for the strut, drill & tap & add studs for the top. The fancy blue anodizing and laser marking probably costs more.

The Top Gun spacer is welded, just like the Daystar. More manufacturing involved.

Maybe the 2" will reduce the coil bucket banging?

Point taken but, when you consider 90% of the market is people like myself who have nothing to mill, drill, cut, bend metal, then the $175 looks more appealing.

Don't know exact differences in length or anything but just be aware that a 2" lift spacer is only about 1" thick... apparently a lot of paople have been really confused by this!

I was actually about to post the same question. You beat me to it.
I was wondering about reliability, though I don't see anything bad.

Can't really tell but the Auto Spring Kits and the Top Gun Customz spacers
look similar height-wise? I was gonna save the $10 and go for the Auto
Spring Kits one for $90 shipped.

Main reason for wanting these spacers was b/c I don't like the ass dragging
look a 3" spacer like Calmini and 1.5" shackles might give me.
If anyone has any more info on these spacers, would be appreciated.
