Towing with RR lift?

I have a 05 4.7L WK with the 2.25 lift. On occasion I pull a horse trailer which is 1900lb empty and roughly 3000-6000lb with horses inside. The truck pulls the trailer fine, I was curious if by me doing this it will make my RR spacers compact and I will ultimately loose lift height over time? Thanks.

Re: Towing with RR lift?

If you have the rear puck spacer on the bottom of the coil, you will damage them. They need to be installed on top.

Re: Towing with RR lift?

Ok. I looked and I cannot tell if they are on top or bottom of rear.

Re: Towing with RR lift?

If you cannot tell they are probably on the top. They would be pretty obvious on the bottom.

For my own learning, why is the placement of the spacer important when considering towing?

The puck spacers always need to be on top, RRO had there directions wrong for a long time.
