rustys 1/4" spacer

Guys quick question- In order to install the 1/4" rusty's spacer, do you need to remove the front coil spring set up or just loosen the bolts under the hood. Place the spacer between the spring and body and reassemble?

Thanks ahead of time

The entire coil/strut assembly needs to be removed. The 1/4" spacer slides over the 4 studs at the top of the coil/strut assembly.

If the front is jackedup high enough to let the arms full drop won't the studs clear enough space to slip the spacer in? I ask because I thought I had read that this is possible - I really don't know.

BTW - your avatar, where is that?

This is about the leveling kit right? I too was wondering how easy the install was what what the process was.

I was thinking they should slip in without removal, but I haven't tried yet.

yes it is the helper spacer. It should lift the front a half inch.

sunrcr69 is right. The whole assembly needs to be dropped. The spacers goes onto the 4 studs and then you bolt the assembly back up. I've had them on now for about a year and a half.

Before

After

There is enough room to slip the spacers in over the top strut studs if you remove the sway bar bolts from the LCA's and separate the upper LCA's from the steering knuckles. Drop the suspension down after you take off the (4) strut tower nuts on each side and you are good to go.

Should take a half hour tops to complete.
