Re: "CUSTOM 8” LIFT W/RUSTY’S LONG TRAVEL ARMS "

i guess im just differant than most of you guys, but those welded spacers arent that bad of an idea. a solid welded steel mount would be stronger than a set of ACOS adjustable spacers. (which alot of people on here run) the only problem i see with these is the bump stops need to be much longer so the spring doesnt dislodge. run a set of acos at thier max and you have the same thing except the acos are bolted on and have an adjustable collar that can slip. but youd look cool.

Strength of the weld and material is suspect, that's a lot of force on that area.

ACOS are strong, they're a proven design dating back to at least 2002 (not exactly sure when Hinkley released them, I was too poor for 'em!).
