What exactly are misalignment spacers? Like a special washer essentially? Have any pics?

If there is an opportunity to get in on the brackets, I'm interested. Will be on stock height and am in no hurry.

PM sent expressing interest.

Thanks

Nah... haven't even bothered. I'm just going to wait until I get the brackets before I start trying to take measurements. Gonna take a while for sure I'm probably going to have to take a couple days off to get them installed and get an alignment once they are in. Plus try and lower the rear. It'll be fun though.

Yeah, I'm almost positive I was one of the first few to order, maybe the first. I know I was the second to confirm interest in this thread. I also wanted support bars too. I'm not stressing either, but would like my last two questions asking about the status answered.

800 might be a bit much for a ranger. I know a guy that had 800 on his explorer with a big *** front bumper, roof rack, etc etc. Heavy truck.. He said after a couple thousand miles, the felt PERFECT.

800#s for me, I have quite a bit of weight up front, but I would rather have a little stiffer ride then pay for coilovers that sag on me later down the road

dangit, im having second thoughts now about my spring rate. do you guys suggest trading my 800's for 750's?

my bumper wieghs about 80 lbs and i want a winch which will weight at least 50-60 lbs with synthetic line (estimate, i dont know how much a winch weighs exactly)
