Anyone ever fabbed up their own balljoint spacers. they look easy enough to make. If not has anyone found a set for under $150?? I can't bring myself to spend that much on a little piece of t-6 with some holes in it!!!!

Without CNC, they are very difficult to make. You might be able to band saw them but I pitty da' foo who tries to hold on to that piece of metal for that long. :D

yeah i dont know i was thinking if they were aluminum i might be able to do a pretty rough cut with a sawzall and a grinder. i have after market upper a's. and have some room for error. i just for one dont know where to get the t6 and how much it will be.

obviously they extend your downward travel but will it lift the front of the truck any.

i guess if it doesnt lift up the front of the truck my alignment is gonna be absolutly terrible??!!

You have to align your truck afterwards no matter what. There are instructions on our site if you want to do it yourself. www.sdori.com.

If you install them you will sit 1.5" higher. However you can adjust up or down from there. Some people adjust their torsion bars for another .5" of lift some down. I run my spacers with 1" of lift which means I gained 1" of up travel and .5" of down travel. It's a personal preference thing.
