Cary T is more right than you think.
While the adjustable track arm and track arm mount spacers ultimately achieve the same end, there is a difference. These trucks exert a significant amount of force on the track arm and track arm mounts. The spacers lower the upper track arm bracket away from the frame, which puts exponentially more stress the mounting bolts (think of carrying a 12 pack. It's easy when carried close to your body versus with your arm partially of fully extended out to the side).
If the track arm system fails while driving the truck will be very difficult to control - and death wobble is certain. For me and my $50K truck, I'm going the safest route possible.
