Ok. I was under the impression the spacer went above the strut cap so the strut/coil assembly it kept intact and not changed at all.
All it does is raise it. The articulation/travel is kept the same.
Where does the spacer go that your talking about Syd.

at the top but it still compresses the coil. They are crap. Polyurethane ones for cruisers patrols are fine but the metal ones for Colorado struts are different CRAP for Offroad plus we couldn't get the wheel alignment spot on

Oh ok.
glad YA told me.
Very much appreciate it.
I'll save for a spring and shock raise of 50mm. And put shackle in rear.

Looked at the dobinson gear. Looks good and Sussex some vids out.
I want a 50mm lift. Not 40mm and not the OME 35mm that ARB are trying to flog off. Lol

Dobinson Coils are only $200 same price as spacers ? You can use the coils and retain old struts/shocks. Go the heavier Dobinson you might get 50mm lift

Well we fitted a set of 33"s for the first time and the fuel economy is 12.5l/100km and struggles to change into 6th gear @ 100kmh
