No, and I can say that from personal experience...the spacer diameter is too small. Still have to send mine back or sell it on eBay...
 












And now i know i need a longer drive shaft ..
It failed on me today

wonder how much lift i got in the rear.. soa gives about 5" but i did mine with some old superlift springs:eek:
 






It's gotta be more than 6"...my springs sag a bit and the top of the 33's are about in line with the top of that rear trim. Do you have a write up of the SOA and pics of the parts you used? Those shock mounts under your springs look kinda tall...
 






I don't have a write up or a picture of the part alone.. it is the bracket that came with the superlift kit..

i got a bicture of it on the truck

Looks like the block is about 2,5cm

1 inch = 2.54 cm

Its a standard Super lift part. Make sure the u bolts are tight because the bracket will rub. It's a good idea to weld the brackets to the axle. Mine rubbed a groove in the top if the axle tubes.
 






Im starting my 5.5 in the next week or so. invaluable information here :bigthumb

Im still going over every bolt on the lift and tighten up loose bolts:thumbsup:
 






so I did a Google search on your Superlift springs. They started life as 4" lift springs. Minus sag. Thats roughly 8-9 of total lift. Thats Tall. :)
 






I really like those wheels, but whenever I google them, the results come up in another language. Guess I'll just stick with mine, haha.
 






Make sure to keep an eye on the front lift brackets where they bolt to the frame. Those Super lift brackets tend to crack at the bolt tabs. Easy fix if you catch it before the front suspension falls out.
 












My options is. ..

Take out one spring from the leafpack,
Put the leafs undre the axle again and order shackels or just live with it the way it is and do somthing with the drive shaft. ..
 






Pull the bottom leaf. Its for overload control so if you don't tow or load it down you won't notice. You can also pull the shims between the leaf springs. They are only there to help prevent squeaking. While you got it apart, spray the leafs with graphite anti-friction paint. I did that and got a lot more flex.

will i get it an inch or two down if i pull the bottom leaf out?

I never have alot of cargo or tow with it so it sounds like a plan :thumbsup:
 






You'll lose only the thickness of that leaf, but you'll gain more flex out of the rear...
 






Oops....just re-looked at the pics of your springs...I was thinking of the stock springs with the straight overload leaf. You might drop a little, but I don't think it'll be as much as you're looking for...
