front strut spacers

Does anyone have the measurements from a 2" budget boost front strut spacer? I have the ability to build them. I just dont want to take the front end of the commander apart to get the measurements.

Thanks for any help.

I dont have the actual measurements of my spacers, however the word on the street is that what ever size spacer you use you get double that in lift. So with that being said if you had a 1 inch spacer made you would get 2 inches of lift up front.

Man I got cheated then. I put a 2" Rough Country strut spacer in and only got 2 inches of lift!

That's prolly cause the 2 inch lift is less than 2 inch part. Maybe?

Besides, I think he wants to know bolt hole pattern.

I was thinking that comment was incorrect. A 2" spacer will push the strut down 2".

I am hopeing someone has a set of spacers not installed yet, and they can trace them and give some measurements.

You actually measured the spacer and it was 2 inches thick?

There have been a few members on the forum that installed additional 1/4 inch spacers and got exactly 1/2 of lift out of them.

Yeah I think your right. I didnt think about that when I first replied. I was just thinking the thickness of the spacer.

Not exactly. Read this thead and it will tell you everything you need to know about how spacers lift a vehicle with IFS. IFS is totally different then a solid axle. When you install a 2 inch spacer on the rear of the commander you will get exactly 2 inches of lift since the spacer is pushing the entire axle down two inches. Or I guess you could say its pushing everything above the axle up. Which ever one you prefer.

Here's a set of spacers that are much less expensive than those listed in the above attached thread....
