They will work. Why the rear spacer tho?

Add your lift and tire difference to your current height and you'll get the measurement you need..

I wouldn't run an RCX lift with maxed Bilsteins. That's 4" of leveling kit bro.....

Depending on the your current rake and the look you're going for I guess you could. I personally won't go back to spacers. The RCX shocks are shit as they sit already

What size tires and what tires you gonna run!? Any other mods? What gears you got...
