They are just coil spacers. You can use them and get up to 2" of lift and will require an alignment. Personally I prefer to gain the lift from the skyjacker 2" lift coils. They are only a little bit more money, are easier to install, and replace your 13+ year old coil springs.

I ran spacers for awhile and then switched to skyjacker coils and then switched back to the spacers. I wasnt happy with the amount of lift from the coils. It looked like i got more with the spacers.

I realize that I'm reviving an old thread but this is relevant to what I'm looking to level my 97 2wd. Does it matter that the Daystars and some others say they're for 83-96? Can I not put them on a 97 or is there some difference?

Sounds good, thanks. I'm amped to get this thing leveled.

Last question, does anyone know which part from Daystar is the 2"? I can't find a whole lot on their site, I see the KF09105BK on Amazon but it only says 1.5". Is there another one that gives a full 2"? Thanks

EDIT, I'm seeing the KF09101BK for the 2" if anyone can confirm...
