Yeah, very nice job....just curious, did you use a mill(i think thats what its called) to make them? If so, how long did it take you? I'd like a set too, lol!

Yeah, I used a milling machine to make them. I may actually have time this summer to make a few sets but you might be able to get them cheaper somewhere else. It took me about two hours to make them and the material would be about $20 per set. I charge $50 an hour for custom parts so I would sell these for about $120.

Default lift level spacers

Hey this is my first Post here. RichJHU, nice job on those spacers, it really makes a difference to to the look of the truck.
It seem you when through the same situation I am going through now. I have complete access to a machine shop and can make the spacers myself, I was just wondering what you used as an inner & outer diameter and if you had to chamfer the top surface at all?
Thanks everyone for any help you can give me here.

Nice work! I wish I had access to some of the cool tools people have on here.

You would not expect any settling, the springs are not new and the aluminum certainly doesn't flex.

What about longer shocks? Is that any concern with being 2" closer to topping them out?

I am going to machine my own leveling kit just as you did, but am having the same problem...I can't find the dimensions anywhere.

You stated that there are three 5/16-18 bolts on a 3 3/4" bolt circle with two of them being 128 degrees apart and the last being 104 degrees...that much is understood.

From your picture I see that there are three holes (that appear to be tapped) on the top plane and three more thru holes that are on a lower machined plane. Could you explain this further? Or do you have a 2D (or 3D) drawing?

I really don't want to spend $200 if I can make them for $25.

I don't mean to bring up an old thread but are you guys still making your own leveling kits?

There are 6 holes. 3 to go in the original strut location, then you turn the strut 180 degrees and the strut bolts to the other 3 holes in the spacer. If that makes sense.


To the op. very nice job, and nice truck. I have the same truck except for the ram box. I have a ready lift spacer, when I did an alignment the truck was still in spec which was a bonus
