I ordered a set of 1.5 spacers off of ebay, then proceeded to read a little about them hearing nothing but f'n horror stories about them, Are they any good?or should i hang them in my shop ,Guess i should've done my home work first

I ran 1.5 and 2 in spacers on my 4runner never had a problem with them
I did pull the wheels off and re torque the spacers after a few thousand km
it was driven like a three year old with a hot wheels and a hammer
it had 38.5 boggers on it

I've been considering them for awhile now, and I think I'm gonna run either 1.5 or 2" on my silverado. I wasn't too sure about running with something between my wheels and my hubs but as it's been said, if they're torqued properly you shouldn't have any problems with them.

problem with locktite is when you retourque the wheels the lock tite is no longer tight it's meant for stuff that gets torqued and that's it
and you have to retourque the spacers same as your wheels with spacers or not
