Bilsteins with half inch strut spacer equal almost one inch lift?

Just wanted everyone's opinion on this, as the question has crossed my mind. Since the Bilsteins give you 3/8" an inch lift, what happens if you add the 1/4" strut spacer (which gives 1/2" lift) will you get almost an inch lift then? Top it off with stock replacement Monroe Load Levelers in the rear and now you have that almost one inch lift all the way around, factory rake and all? Just curious.

Re: Bilsteins with half inch strut spacer equal almost one inch lift?

I'm really thinking about it Problem is, I have been working all this OT at work and the money has been so good, that at this rate the Superlift is starting to actually look do-able But, at the small lift, I would not have to do major mods and such and keep my power and mileage reasonable.

Re: Bilsteins with half inch strut spacer equal almost one inch lift?

Just ordered all the stuff. Had it all 2 day shipped and the Monroe Load levelers over nighted. Shipping is high these days! Anyways, parts on the way
