Ranger Home made Coil Spacers?

I read somewhere that i can stack 3"outer diameter washers w/ 1 3/8" inner diameter.(welded together) I am having trouble finding that exact size washer...would 3 1/2 x 1 5/8" work? How bout 2 1/2 x 1 1/4 washers? Any ideas?

Yeah, you get less than an inch of lift. Not worth it man. The i-beam lifts arent that badly priced, just do it right, no jerry rigging

Yeah, lifts are too reasonably priced for your year and you can get spacers, not to metion for a reasonable price, I am having to get new c arms and coils, maajor $$$$, your lucky you have alot of options. But it is your truck. I say a highly recomended no to that one, oh and chucks05edge, I heard of usind the roler for for boat trailers for body lifts, just thought I would let you know, that way you don't have to drill holes in the hocky pucks!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yeah so I say NO!!! to washers!!!
