I have them.  Worth it??? dunno but the spring doesn't sit  all fked up anymore.  The spring spacer adds a little more preload if you run the spring in the same number on the adjuster


When in doubt, throttle out !!!!!

I've used them on the last couple sleds, they seem to work, I typically can go feel a stiffer spring setting without more tension, like a half setting per se.

I like mine. They hold the spring centered on the shaft and let me run the stock springs instead of needing to buy a set of stiffer springs.

Does anyone know if they void your warranty if you put them on?   Gotta ask the question, because you know how it could go down if some sort of shock or skid problem came into play.

I can't imagine it would impact the warranty. If you get them from Hygear or Monster Performance you should be fine. They have them designed so they are not going to cause the springs to bind.

Ordered some today, along with the better stronger, short center spring from Monster Performance.

I run the spacers and the stiffer springs on my 13 but not on my 16, seemed like their was less rear sag on my 13. I will have them on my 17. I was told by the dealer I got my 13 from (Felker) if I jump alot I should get the stiffer springs.

Any chance I could get an outside diameter of the spacers? I have some UHMW stock and access to a lathe... thinking this would be a fun project.
