Has anyone ever seen or used these?

I've seen those and spring clamps used, but usually to lower instead of raise.

there was also a coil spring spacer designed to fit inbetween the coils when you jack it up. i already have a 3 inch body and a 1.5 leveling, and i just need a tad more in the front to get it completely level. which do you recommend?

I personally would go with the coil spring spacers instead of the boosters. I have heard that they and cause even more spring fatigue over a period of time and you would en up needing to keep adding more. JMO

Stay away from the Booster. it won't do what you want. I agree w/ bigrammer up your spacer size, or go the extra mile and splurge on new Coils. New coils give you a better ride.

They are garbage. Either install longer coils or a set of lift spindles.

Oh yeah, That spacer you're talking about that fits inside the coil. I've got a pair in my junk box. Got them cause they were cheap, probably better for a station wagon of the 70's era.

ReaperMarine51 quit trying to go cheap and save some money and get a good spindle lift and take the body lift off. Or leave the truck alone! If you keep trying to put cheap suspension parts on it like this coil spring adjuster you are going to be buying an entire new suspension in a year or two that will cost a whole lot more.
