There's a company called Pro tune suspension selling 3in spacers on Amazon. Anyone heard of them?

Never heard of them, and I also don't recommend doing anything over Traxda's 2.5/1.25". The reviews alone don't look all that great. Strut spacers aren't meant to push high lifts. leveling kits which push 2-3" max. I wouldn't recommend these only because I have the Traxda leveling kit + oversized tires and my joints already take a pounding.
Is there anything wrong with using the Truxxx spacers? They're the same height as the traxda ones I believe
Those would probably be okay. Traxda bought out Truxxx so they're the same thing. It's just new-old stock. I really like my Traxda ones. Changed the entire way the truck looks and semi improved the ride.
Was there a noticeable difference after putting the spacers on? Are you running oem struts?
Yeah OEM struts, springs, the whole 9. After the lift and wheel/tires. There is about a 3 inch difference
Ok dumb question on my part... I want to raise (level ) the front of my 02 ex with the back... I was going to get the 2.5" spacers. Will that actually give me the 2.5" lift in the front? Thanks
Actual lift height ends up being about 1.5x the actual spacer height. So divide your desired lift height by 1.5 and that will give you the size spacers you need
watching some youtube I found a video with a new company supreme suspensions, looks like they are like half the price as traxda and build quality looks spot on check them out they offer 2.5 and 3 inch front and 1.5 and 2 inch rear strut spacers ..... $149.95 – $164.95
$165.40 for 2.5"front and 1.5" rear. Not bad. Products look good.
Check the reviews - I've heard many reports of these not being manufactured correctly; specifically, the holes aren't lining up and require some grinding. Was interested in these myself as they also offer higher lift options in addition to 2.5" and 1.5", but the amount of people sending them back due to fabrication problems had me worried.
I used the 2" spacers on my 2008 Ford Explorer. They worked Great, but there was some fabrication needed. The factory strut bolts in front are to long to fit the 2" spacer, so I had to trim 1/8" off with a grinder. If your planing on the 3" you would not have this problem. I went with the 2" because I just wanted a level look.
I am running 255/75/17 = 32.1" x 10" BFG M/T tires on my factory Eddie Bauer rims no rubbing. Looks awesome i will take some pics to post
