What do you think?:rolleyes: It is the same reason many guys use double sheer on thier high steer arms and other high stress/critical connections. I think it is an accident waiting to happen. Its no so much the surface area contact as it is the leverage that has been multiplied by moving the load an additional 1"+/- above the contact surface. To summarize...stupid idea IMO!

Some guy in Hawaii made the spacer to "Allow for more travel, and to bring his Uniball alignment" back in check...Or some shit like that. I didnt think it looked like a good idea, but wanted to run it by you all.

the spacer is like a ball-joint spacer, probably in his case to keep the control arm from hitting the coil, I run 1/2" ones because their a nessety with my crappy ass dakota lift that came with with 1" of down travel , probably need to weld them to the control arms so it's not in sheer(top of bj fits into hole like a hub centric wheel), but eh.. I lazy it's all getting :saw: anyways









some guy in my dakota forum did this... and drives on it:eek:



yes those are washers

he has a nice BL too; lets play hockey!


and awesome tires (he drove it like this for 4months)
