Rear spacers

How's it goin everyone. Looking to improve on the stance of my 1996 SCLB by adding 2" spacers to the rear so the tires are about even when looking down the truck. Which hub centric spacers are you guys running, feel free to post pictures and links of the spacer your using. Thanks in advance, hopefully I will find the spacer I need and order it so the truck looks a lot better.

These are the only 2 spacers I personally would run.

Fred's which are steel but $$
WheelAdapter.com is your number one source for wheel adapters, wheel spacers, used wheels, and wheel studs.

Or the BORA's.... aluminum but very well known and American made. And really, what's stronger, the 2" hunk of billet aluminum or cast aluminum rims?

Very good points made, you have peaked my interest in the BORA spacers. They seem to make a good product and American made is a plus! Will the 99-03 F-250/350 spacers work on my 96 F-350, I believe the patterns are the same?

Spoke with BORA spacers directly are building me black anodized spacers specific for my truck. Great customer service so far, they said production should take a week and I am good to go. Thanks for the recommendation!

I've not run them on a SD yet but I've run them On 4 vehicles. They were perfect.

Obviously steel is better but I can't for the life of me understand why they cost so much.
