    Ordered mine there. High quality product. FYI your stock studs are 7/16, the spacers will have 1/2 so you will need new lug nuts. You will also need short lug nuts to bolt the spacer on to the axle.

    Just fitted the WFO ones. 20 minutes and my truck looks like it should have come from the factory like it. Didn't like that 'sucked in' at the rear look!
    Their kit comes with everything you need...even loctite! /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    [/ QUOTE ] Never understood why GM did that. Looks like crap in my opinion. I much reather have the wheels lined up correctly.
