  1. Can you describe the spacers / know the diameter, length, and hole size by any chance? Thanx, Krunch
  2. Much thread left on the bolts when you torqued them down? Odd that Belltech offers a "Spacer" with their kit if they are not needed. Just trying to get all my ducks in a row for when I drop my truck off to my guy to lower it. I don't want, and can't afford delays when doing this. Thanx, Krunch
  3. Hey guys! Just ordered my McG spindles, 2" lowering shackles, and shock extenders (just in case) today. I am removing the block as well from the axle, but forgot to address the "Spacers" I need as the consensus here seems to be that its ok to reuse the old bolts. I know Belltech has a spacer in their kit, trying to see if I can order that separately. I think I've heard to use washers as well? What type, size, and quantity? Using washers sounds kinda hackish to me but I may have no other option. I've seen replacement bolt P/N: 15002781 referenced here as being shorter but Rock Auto's price is about $23 a piece plus shipping and it says it's not for my 2016. Any other suggestions besides flat washers I should consider? Thanx, Krunch
  4. I only plan to throw a few pieces of lumber in it every now and again or my bike which is about 500 lbs. Thanx, Krunch
  5. What about bump stops? Will I need to replace or modify the OEM ones? Thanx, Krunch
  6. Hmmm... I think I understand what they may have done, and doing this may have eliminated the need for spacers on your bolts. If that’s what they did, I wonder if they added some sort of plate between the top of the rubber block and the u-bolts so the bolts wouldn’t squat into the rubber? thanx, krunch
  7. Flipped the block? I thought it got deleted? thanx, krunch
  8. Ii have 4WD, I have 20” stock rims and winter tires for winter, and just bolted on the 22” summer rims and tires. So I don’t need to trim any studs? would consider reusing the bolts but I would also need to buy spacers anyway right? thanx, krunch
  9. I was leaning towards McGaughys parts. I think I read something about having to cut a nut or something on the Bell spindles? Was also considering ordering new, shorter bolts to eliminate spacers completely. Do I need shock extenders and different bump stops for the rear drop I am planning? Thanx, Krunch
  10. Hey guys, I think I have decided where I want to start with my lowering. I hope to order spindles for the front, and 2” lowering shackles and remove the rubber block between the leafs and the the axel. Should be about 2/3.5ish. Should maintain a little rake when empty and level out when I have my bike in the back 😎 will I need new, shorter bolts for the leaf springs and what about shock extenders? Anything else I am forgetting? Thanx, Krunch
  11. I’m in a similar boat. my Wheels and Tires (22s) are currently in transit. In the next couple of months I hope to order spindles for the front, and 2” lowering shackles and remove the rubber block between the leafs and the the axel. Should be about 2/3.5ish. Based on the truck above, should be exactly where I want to start. Should maintain a little rake when empty and level out when I have my bike in the back 😎 will I need new, shorter bolts in the rear and what about shock extenders? Anything else I am forgetting?

  12. Nasty, Im also interested in why you would choose the coils over the struts in this situation. This is the exact decision I am about to make. Would the coils / spindles make a better ride or are their other gains to solving this vs using struts / spindles. thanx, krunch
  13. Nice truck. 24”s I assume? What tire size? krunch
  14. 204-WPG, I should take a rip to Winnipeg and check out your truck and chat if I could ever find the time. You don't happen to visit Brandon from time to time by chance do you? Krunch
  15. Just curious Daly. What drop, front and rear are you targeting? I also have a 4x4 and bell told me more than 2/4 is not recommended on a 4x4. thanx, Krunch
