Default Rusty's Adjustable coil spacers??

Anyone have any input on these things? I never heard of them, and didn't see any thing about them any where on this site when I was researching lift info. Looks a little sweeter than a poly B.B. at first glance, being adjustable,but do they hold up, make noises, ect.? I'm looking for a short term fix for the "soccer mom stance" until I rat hole away enough$ for track bars & lower arms to do it right.
Any info is appreciated.
Thanx :newbie:

I have never used a Rusty product, though I've heard his stuff is junk.

Saw them at safari, Really nice. they are machined out of steel. and can be adjusted with a wrench just like a motorcycle spring.

They don't look bad to me. (Famous last words so, put them on yours and we'll see how they hold up!)


I bought the tow hook brackets from Rusty and they worked great.

Lots of people say they don't like Rusty's stuff, but I for one think has very good products. I run his shocks. He stands by his stuff 100%. If you ever have a problem with them he will take care of it. JMHO.

there are people that HATE Rusty and there are people that LOVE rusty. It's wierd because people that buy his products fall into one of the two catagories (and there seems to be like no grey in that one). I'm going to grab his crossover steering because I'm to lazy to Fab something. Most of his stuff looks really good so I figure its worth a try.

ACOS is the only really good adjustable spacer in my mind... Kevin.. are you running ACOS with your KJP7" (I like that acronym). I figured out why my rig is acting so funny with the handling issue. The rear axle is off-center by 3/4 (won't be a problem after my 8.8 swap) and the skycrapper springs are off by a whole 1 1/2". I thought running more lift might be questionable but ACOS wouldsure as hell fix the spring problemn.

Default Thanx for the input guys,

I appreciate all comments & opinions on this post, but I've seen the ACOS and it is a slick setup for the front.A little pricey for 2, I could buy new springs for that. The link that Hunter posted with his reply will take you to the product that I'm talkin about. :grin: (thanx Hunter, I'd liked to put the link on my post, but my computer skills are limited to "click &point". This is a 4 corner deal. The ACOS is only front, for same$$. A bigthanx againfor comments and check out the link that Hunter left. It'll take ya right to em.
P.S. glad to see your back "up" Kevin.
Later...................
