So I went down to my Ford Parts Counter to get the F150 coil spacers and guess what, there were 22.00 for left side and 47.00 for the right side. So I found the 2" spacers that was 125.00 from some places for 50.00 on Ebay with free shipping.

I am not a fan of running coil spacers,,,,,they are way to dangerous...lift it the correct way of you might have a really bad expensive incident. I do not know anybody that has ever run spacers for all my 4x4 and 2wd lifted trucks. None of our local 4x4 truck shops will install coil spacers...ever!!!!

Please explain how a coil spacer that bolts underneath the coil seat is at all dangerous?

The only shitty ones I have seen are the poly ones that like to split/fall apart.

not sure how they would come anymore loose than without them.... I just made these and installed them...and as hard as I can crank on a 1 1/8" wrench, I doubt theyd come loose.

My credo
Confused and Intolerant
He is right, it is dangerous to use them like that, because of the amount of force being pushed down, it has a higher rate of breaking than a standard lift. A way higher rate.

You get what you paid for, and sometimes the cheap stuff will end up hurting you in the long run.

I really don't get how you see that as being dangerous or un safe in anyway? The factory did the exact same thing on 2wd f150's.....

I have been running my 1" washer spacers in my lifted 91 for 7 years now with zero problems and it gets beat on.

I just made and installed a set of 1 1/8" solid aluminum spacers in my 97 as well.....
