2" Leveling Spacers

Has anyone got any experience with the 2" spacers that go between the lower coil spring bracket and the front axle housing?

What are the pros/cons?

I'm NOT going to be doing any hard core off-roading. It's just that the F350 has that stink bug look that sucks.

Thanks,
Dave

I have the ReadyLift 2.5" leveling kit on my F-350 with some Rancho RS9000's. Truck rides nice, and seems to perform just as it always did. My spacers are on top of the spring.

Well, leveling kit showed up today, should be able to put it in Saturday morning. I'll post my first impressions some time this weekend.

The installation was very simple and went very smoothly. About 2 hours without any air tools in the driveway. Did wonders for the attitude of the truck. Will probably get an adjustable trackbar or trackbar relocation kit as the axle is shifted about 3/8" to the driver's side. BFG 315/70R17's fit without any rub. So far, so good.

How do 33's look with the levelling kit? I do want to throw 35's on but that'll come later, so for the time being I wanna know if a stock tire is gonna look goofy or not.

I still have 33's on my truck with the leveling kit, but they are 13.5 inches wide. I don't think that would be a good referance for you. I think it will look just fine. I'm actually waiting for my 35x12.5x18's to come in this week.
