2007 Ram 1/4" Spacer Results - 2.5" Level/35X12.5 Tires
 
2 Attachment(s)
Installed 2.5inch readylift leveling kit. Got 35x12.5r20 procomp xtreme at's. Before spacers it barely cleared upper control arm and they started to rub the sides of the upper control arm at about 90percent of a full turned wheel and at full turn they rubbed sway bar. Put on spacers and crawled under the truck while son was turning the wheels both ways and no rubbing. it comes close to the upper control arm on the sides but you can see daylight, although not much. I have stock 20's but i think they are the old 20's from 2005 or so but the backspacing i believe is the same as the newer ones.

For future searches with the question of will they fit:

a 2007 dodge ram 4x4 with a 2.5 inch level kit and 1/4 inch spacer will fit with no rubbing or cutting sporting 35x12.50r20's.:smileup:

Thanks. When it stops raining i can try to get more photos of the upper control arm and sway bar. I took the dodge on a test drive to see if there was any extra unbalance or rumble with the spacers. I could tell a slight rougher ride but it was not that noticeable. given the big more aggressive tires i dont think anyone would notice. there was only one position that the spacers would would go because they were made for 5 and 6 lug. it also appears i had plenty of thread left for the lugs but by sunday night i will check the tightness of the lugs.

took pics of the upper control arm on both sides at full wheel lock. in one you can see the sway bar. it used to rub but it appears that the 1/4 inch spacer created about 1-2 inches at the sway bar area.
