Strut Spacer Experience?

Hey guys,
I have a Daystar 2" BB in my 08 4.7L
because the 4.7 is obviously a little heavier up front than the 3.7, the leveling of the Daystar is still off a bit..
I'm adding Bilsteins probably in October, but would like to add 1 set of 1/4" rustys strut spacers up front to lift the front a little more and give me a more level look.( I know some don't like that)

Some people say its fine.. others say I shouldn't do it.. I know stacking 2 BBs is a terrible idea and I would never do it, but is it cool to use 1/4" strut spacer plate up front with my Daystar lift?

Anyone have experience with using strut spacer plates with a BB?

Re: Strut Spacer Experience?

Lots of people have stacked the 2. If you're really worried about it you could weld the plate to the spacer. That would make it essentially one piece.

The 1/4" plate will give you a half inch of front lift.
