A long time reader, first time poster now that I have me a new Tacoma
I put a 3" level kit on it, some nice tires and the differential drop down kit as well, in the way of preventative maintenance of course. A buddy of mine said the truck would really dazzle with some 1.25" wheel spacers, and suggested these to me (only 1.25" and not 1.5")
There seems to be some people who outright detest these, while others don't seem to have a problem. I figured it would be best to speak to fellow Tacoma owners as they have the best idea of what spacers actually do to a taco. I've read only that they kind of throw off the engineering of the vehicle and force the weight on all the front drive train, causing premature wear to things like balljoints and bearings instead of being on the center hub or something
Now if someone could take a look at those spacers and tell me how they would be on my 2002 4x4 Taco? Would they hurt much? I just had a CV boot replaced and would really rather now touch the front drive train again for a long time. I dont't want to be putting spacers on if I'm going to be ripping them off in detest 25kmiles down the line as I rebuild a front drive train. I realize there have been other spacer topics but I didn't want to bump old topics, and I figured this could be well off on its own.
Thanks for any help
