i just ordered my MLLs... should be here wednesday/thursday and on by the end of the week

Is there a good source for WK poly spacers...I would like to add a 1/2 spacer.

As far as longevity with the MLL's, I figure even if they do settle over time, the worst that could happen is you go closer to the original result of the RC lift. It's not like you're going to be sagging, you'd just be level again.

I think the benefit of MLL's over a spacer would be towing. Adding a cut down poly spacer will get you the lift you want for slightly more work (getting the longer MLL's on isn't hard but took a little creativity), but once you hook up a trailer you're going to sag just as much as before.

This should be moved over to the MLL thread though, don't want to muddy up this thread too much.

lots out there. basically if you get the ID and OD right, any flat spacer should do. see different thicknesses on left...

Yes, you can use the longer rear shocks w/ the RC lift. Mine are about 1.5" longer then stock.
