Post Spacers?

Would you guys advise going wide with spacers? I plan on getting a 5" lift and putting 35s on, now everyone I talk this over is always asking if im going to go wider. So my question is... If I go up do I have to go out?

Spacers look good though IMO. I just purchased 1.5" spacers from quadratec.

not sure who you are asking but I have zero complaints. I also drive 220 miles interstate one way every other weekend.

The short answer is no, you don't HAVE to go out when you go up. Some people like the wider look that the Spacers can provide. Putting the heavy tires further away from the axles with spacers can add some stress and fatigue to the running components. You'll want to make sure you check everything regularly for signs of failure, but that's a good idea with or without the spacers!

If you decide you like the spacer look, check out the link in this post. Don't forget that we offer a 6% forum discount and completely free shipping on all orders over $75 regardless of physical size or weight, no surcharges! Let me know if you have any other questions or if I can help you with anything at all!
