That looks sweet! I'm debating doing this. Is that factory suspension and Tire size? Or did you lift/level with bigger rubber?

Look like hubcentric spacers. I was toying with the idea of a 1.5" spacer and keeping the stock wheels. My main concern was with there potentially being more stress on the bearings with the added offset.. I may just pull the trigger on them though. With the right hubcentric spacer, you shouldn't have too much of an issue with vibration.. and looks the way the truck should. :)

I havent noticed any changes in the steering or vibrations at all, truck still rides awesome. as long as the spacers are hubcentric, i dont think there will be any issues. Just make sure after installing them to check and re torque them after about 50 miles i'm told.

Definitely gotta check em' and re-torque. But after that you should be good. I may even say pull em' off when you do your brakes or something just to make sure. I've seen someone install them and they just got bonded to the rotor. It was a pain in the behind to take em' off

Yeah i did a little digging on the spacers and they recommend putting a thin coat of anti-seize compound on so you don't have an issue getting them off. cheap price to pay to keep them from getting stuck.

I always use red locktite on the truck and the race car, no issues. Just make sure the hardware is 10.9 or equal and hub centric like shown.

I had bora 1.5 inch spacers with all stock, and it looked great. Make sure you remove the metal tabs the factory installs when putting the rotors on, your spacers wont sit flush if you leave them on and youll get a wobble

I agree with you on the locktite. My buddy has over 50k miles on a set of hubcentric spacers and he put locktite on the hardware and they haven't had any issues.
