1" lift using coil spring boosters ???

i saw these at autozone and thought it would be a cheap quick way to get a 1" lift. i have seen these before and i remember back in highschool my friend said he was using these to clear some bigger tires. so i bought them today, havnt installed them yet, i will tomorrow but curious has anyone used these before? im surprised i have not seen any post about them and i searched...could be a solution for those who want to even out 1 side lean.

if you dont know what im talking about its these...their metal and i guess what you do is jack of the tire, so the coils space out, and twist these in so a coil doesnt compress all the way, thus giving to a little lift. probably not much, it says up at an 1" but ill see..i dont see it impacting ride quality that much, guess i will find out tomorrow.

They work.

Be careful though..there known to fall out/dislodge from harsh offroading/driving.

I modify my truck because I have lil to no friends

I've also seen coils snap due to those...
