I have a Fabtech lift kit and it uses a 4" spacer. The ride quality is wicked I have no complaints.

The Rancho kit only allows you to raise the truck by 4". This is because they use the same principles as the Bilstein 5100s. the spring seat will be raised by the use of Ranchos shock (Quick Lift). The other 2" of lift will be like every other lift, new steering knuckles.


Really in all honesty there is not a big difference with the ride quality with the spacers or the strut. I would personally go with the Superlift if I had to choose out of the 2. The spacer you never really have to worry about it breaking or anything. The spring seat might give way over time and lots of abuse.

Are you looking at getting a 4" or 6" lift? If you are debating between the two I would recommend going ll the way and get yourself a 6" lift. You will be much happier with that.

I agree totally!!
