    Im getting a 8 inch suspension lift from superlift and im going to be putting 38.5x11x16 inch rims on my dually. What size spacer should i get for the rear? I heard there was a guy with a c3500 and a dana70hd and he ran 13 inch wides duallys on stock 16 inch rims and only a 3 inch spacer and he said he could have proboly used a 2 inch. What do you think i should use.

    lifting a 1ton some times you need to cut and clock the shock mounts on the axle. my cab chassie with 4" needed the pass side done to bolt the shock on it.

    only thing i see a problem with is the spacers dont have the correct center lip to center the rim on a dulley axle. then the outer tire might wobble a bit and be a pain in the ars to center.

    sorry i cant help anymore.

    It's a great site, that's just a sample article I remembered reading a while back but go check out the forums. Mostly because being a towing site (which is still connected to CK5) a ton of guys run one tons.
