Default one more spacer ?? i swear

i have no lift on my bike and don't plan on it, just want a little more stability and a wider look, i know it put's a little stress and the bearings and all that... should i go with a 1 inch or a 1.5??? i was thinking 1.5 i want it to be noticable to the eye especially for the money im paying. what's all your guys thoughts

On all the research I did last year on two different forums. The answer that I got was not to go any bigger than 2in. So I went an inch and a half. But after my install I realized I should have went with 1 1/2 on front and 1in in the back. But that is because of the lift that was installed.

highlifter springs cause stress at the front outer joint that will weld the snap ring to the cup an you cant get the joint off for boot removal,hence a new axle is in order been there twice now! keep that in mind.

1" would be plenty. Your wheels are already giving you 1"

Honestly I'd leave it as is. I don't run spacers because I like to try and keep the tires as inside the fenders as possible. I do run them on my 350 for stability because it was so narrow and tall with the 1.5" lift and 26's on OEM wheels.

I went with 2" rear and 1.5" front. A perfect setup (For me) would be 1.5" rear 2" front.

I'll be swapping spacers here someday when I get low on shop projects.
