    How thick? Like 1/4", or like 1.5"+?

    (Reason I ask is that Kert @ DIY4x made me some 1/4" or 5/16" ones, custom-like :) )

    my perf ones came with nuts... maybe they have changed. :dunno: This is not the kind of part that should be bought cheap as possible. If the ebay ones are similar grades of Aluminum, then its all good... if they are fly-by-night crap made from poorly melted down pop cans... spend the extra few $$$$ and safe your life/rig in the process. Spacers are sorta like brake parts... don't ever skimp if you can avoid it. :)

    Mine weren't anywhere near $100 a pop btw... more like $115 or something. I have had them awhile tho...

    I got mine (1.5")on ebay with the standard stud size 9/16th IIRC? Be careful not to get ones that have the metric studs as you will have to buy new lug nuts....

    I noticed some are 14mm lugs...but they come with the studs/nuts anyway. I'll stick to 9/16" though.

    Reason I want some is because my K5 is 3/4 ton now (how I bought it) with a J-20 front 44 and Dodge rear 60, both are narrower than Chevy and tires rub. Spacers are to get me by til I get it 1 ton, and I might wanna be a little extra wide then. If not, I can sell, or use for my "stealth" dually on XLs project...if I do it.
