Doug are you just running a pair in the front? Thinking of doing the same.

I bought some "defender" spacers from the optionselects guy on ebay and I am returning them today because they actually don't fit my truck. They are for a Dicso 2. Maybe he will send the right ones out to you, but heads up.

------ Follow up post added March 22nd, 2011 09:48 AM ------

So now I am confused...

Maybe you were just offering two different options, but...

The optionselects one is 5 bolt with 4.75" spacing and a 14/1.5 threaded lug.
The ezaccessory one is 5 bolt with 6.5" spacing and a 16/1.5 threaded lug.

I bought the optionselect one that was supposed to fit a defender but also was listed as 5/4.75" and 14/1.5 lugs and it certainly didn't fit.

I believe the ones that fit a defender are the 6.5" and 16/1.5 lugs. Is this true? I would measure but my truck is at the shop so I am helpless, but still kinda confused, and I guess a bit frustrated too

I have a set front and rear. Fronts are all that's necessary. Not sure who all have them but Gustavo,Jonathan, myself, and others have been running them for some time with no issues.
Mine came from the ezaccessory place

Do you use threadlocker or anti seize or a combination of both. I feel like I have heard of issues with aluminum spacers against steel hubs. Maybe antisieze between the two and threadlocker on lugs?

Cool, thanks. Anything special I need to know about the ezaccessory ones before I buy them for the '95 with boost wheels? I've read that with some the threading is for the steel lugs, but I'd be running the alloys.

I have run spacers in several applications , the main concern is the tend to expand after the first 50-100 miles, so install them, run them hard, then re-tight and be good ( even if they did not expand, do it just for the sake of it )

Ron, will you be running them with LR alloys? Just trying to confirm that the EZ ones listed will work with the capped lugs I have.

Silverline in the UK sells some but because they are not as popular they are more expensive.

They is absolutely no relation when using the spacer to the lug nuts ( the thread and length is the correct one as if did not have spacers ) .

I have run, steels, Alloys ( Freestyles, Deep Dish and boost ) with no issues

Duh, that makes sense now that I think about it, as it's just a pass-through the spacer. Thanks Goose

Josh,


it is not a pass through

Spacer mounts to the hub using the studs on the hub, then the spacer has its own studs replicating the studs on the hub.


Now go get some coffee and wake up
