Well I have put about 20,000mi on mine and checked to make sure that the torque was ok 2X no problems with them loosening As far as vibration,wheel shutter or wobble Nothing at all I have NO bad things to say about the spacers. I posted some Pictures and comments on page 2 Post # 19,24 about them

Re: I Want Spacers

My review after about four months with the 1.5" no vibration at all with AT/3 265-65-17 the ride actually improved with these. Ordered directly from Lenny as well.

I'm gonna rest easy and take your word lol I would love to have ordered 1.5" that's what I had on my 12 and the stance was perfect but it was lifted. I wasn't sure if 1.5" would work with QL. Does yours have QL?

Re: I Want Spacers

Didn't look through the whole thread but I know of a website that custom makes spacers. I have a pair on my Subaru.

The guy does any size, bolt pattern, etc. cut from aluminum stock(Since my wheels are 73mm hubs and the actual car hub is 56.1mm he cut them to make the spacer hub centric)...they look amazing and the fit is the same.

Since it isnt a vendor, if any wants to know just PM me.

Installed the spacers today, I stripped one of the rear nuts with my torque wrench FML . Will get to that later down the road. Anyway, I used gel thread locker on them all. Noticed inmeditely a tighter more stiff feel in the steering wheel feedback. Tracks straight so far no wandering, vibration or rubbing thankfully. Will post better pics later on

Re: I Want Spacers

I installed mine yesterday as well but given the weather here was unable to take any decent shots, will post em this weekend. I noticed an more stable feeling in turns but no stiffness. They look freakin awesome and I think 1.25" was perfect but 1.5" wouldn't be too over the top either for those of you still on the fence. Silt- your Jeep looks hot.

Re: I Want Spacers

I decided to go a little overboard and ordered 50mm (2") spacers for my 2014 JGC LIMITED 4x4 with 20" wheels. They should be coming in today I'm psyched and ready to get to work immediately. I will let you guys know how that works out and will post some pictures
