    I am going to get a lift is there any coupons or discounts for either High Lifter or C-Fab lifts out there and which one should I get they look close to the same just the price. Thinking on a spring spacer I have a spacer on the front not sure on the size for the rear All info is welcome

    I see a good price every now and then for the HL lift. I've been happy with mine but I'm sure the others are good too. I was amazed at how much clearance I got from spring spacers. I gained 2.25" at both ends. Mine is sitting as high as I want to go.

    @drfubar will have to chime in. I got shocks from him. I know they're 3/4" spacers.

    How hard are the spring spacers to put on and what are you using to compress the spring to get the spacers on

    Very easy. I used a couple of ratchet straps and my receiver hitch on my truck. Slide the shock assembly into the receiver hitch use a ratchet strap on opposite sides of the spring. Compress the spring enough to get the retainer off, slide the spacer on, put the retainer back on and release the straps... Just be careful with the spring. It contains a lot of energy. Take it slow and compress the spring as evenly as possible.

    Yep..just be careful to keep even pressure on the spring while loading and unloading the spring or itll try to flop. And keep your face and fingers clear of the spring.

    There are many ways to compress springs on shocks. Just please be careful because it is like looking down a loaded gun with a finger on the trigger. The size of these springs aren't as bad as the larger springs but just as dangerous I don't want to see anyone get I had a friend that was killed years ago when a safety ring blew off a truck wheel he was working on
