what sort of bad things have you heard about coil spacers... i cant see anything that could go wrong with em... ive had em in my truck for half a year now and im not easy on the truck...

so far no problems... and you can get the rough country spacer (no sense getting the revtek one... its the same thing but double the cost) for about 100-150$

they dont squeek if you leave in that rubber spacer that is ontop of the coils (which you are supposed to do anyways)....

Only knock against spacers that I read was on the cummins forum
and it was about 5" spacers ,I guess there is a limit. Just got a
cummins with a 2.5 " coil lift owner said didnt notice any differance
between coils or a spacer in the two trucks he has had .

There is no prob with spacers got them in my 01 ram only thing they do is throw the axle out a bit cause of the track bar but you really dont notice it all

well yeah of course a 5" spacer is going to cause problems, your axle would be so far out the drivers side due to the track bar... it just wouldnt work...

i put 2'' rev tek leveling spacers in a superduty, the ones that go between the axle and the lower coil perch.

truck needed a trac bar drop bracket and an alignment. it also need the trac bar nut to be re-torqued to the 300 ft lb factory spec. it wasn't torqued properly and the truck was driving weird and would get a bit of wobble. also ended up making a 1'' block for the rear so the truck sat level

not sure how the dodge trac bar is setup. new front shocks would be a good idea too
