Opinions on these strut spacers?

Hey guys. I'm wondering if anyone has any input on one vs the other. I will be ordering one of them soon and wanted to hear what you guys thought.

I had the Rusty's prior to the RC lift. But i feel like both the Rustys and RRO are very similar.

They do seem very similar. The RRO seems to get a bit more height out of it from the descriptions. Why did you remove yours?

With the RC spacer lift they made the front sit to high, Ill definitely put them back on if the front drops to much after armor and winch.

Ah. That makes sense. I would probably end up with the same issue once I install my RRO lift in a couple weeks.

I didn't get an alignment afterwards, and never had an issue.

You should always get an alignment after altering the suspension geometry.

Does anybody have a picture of there wk with just these spacers installed? Will the RRO spacer actually lift more then the rustys one because there is a bit of a price difference between them? I just want to boost it up a bit. I want to get an RC lift but im afraid that it will look stupid with my 245/70/17 duratracs, and they are brand new so I wont be getting new tires anytime soon, So these small strut spacers are the next best thing for me i guess.

I ran these for a while with 245/70-17, looks great but could use an extra pair to get rid of the nose down stink bug look. Just search I know I posted pics

Which brand did you run, rustys or rro? I will try to find your pictures, should help get rid of the extreme nose down position ha.

If someone could let me know if the RRO actually gives more lift it would be great. The rustys spacer is $20 cheaper with shipping to my door included, so I need to know which one is a better bang for my buck. Please let me know.

Considering the RRO is gonna give you around 1/4 to 3/8 more - maybe - and not really noticeable - I'd go with the Rusty's for 20 bucks less.

FWIW I have Rusty's spacers on my OME HD and it's perfect - sits at 22.75" hub to fender.

I'm running JBA strut spacers and 245/70R17 Destination ATs. Second best mod so far. Superchip being the first.
