Puttin Revtek Spacers on tonight!!

To level out my truck since my 881s failed to do so then sagged some more. Hopefully it will only be temporary until I can get some 882s. I wish I could go coilovers but that huge thread on them sucks balls in winter and salty roads has deterred me and being in Wyoming they would get owned. So wish me luck, I have a really nice write up to follow and my friend is helping me so it wont be too bad...I hope. Will post pics later.

1997 FZJ80, Factory Lockers, 285s, OME lift.

It's not too bad at all. I'm assuming you're compressing the springs yourself? If so, be extra careful, those things have some hellacious force just waitin' to be unleashed on someones skull! Just remember the factory jack between the upper a-arm trick and you'll be golden!

did the jack trick and everything went pretty smoothly, getting an alignment tomorrow. the lights are definately aimed squarely at stupid ricer cars rear view mirrors now tho.

that's the one! That trick is UBBER helpful. You might have to bang on the inner fender to make it go back out if you have to push it down too far. It can force the inner fender to kinda "curl"(for lack of a better term) inward. Nothing a BFH won't fix .
