Mark isn't active on the site but still sells the lifts and spacers and is very responsive.

I've thought about using spacers but always thought it would cause extra stress on hubs/bearings and ball joints. Anybody noticed anything like that with spacers or adapters?

I would be concerned too with a 4WD. but if I had to replace hub bearings on a 2WD, should really be easy. But the guys with lifted trucks and spacers or adapters would have to chime in if they JUST do trail runs or if its a daily driver

Its been stated many times over the years that the additional stress is really minimal and nothing can actually be proven as the spacers being the culprit. They are no different than using aftermarket wheels typically and no one even blinks about those causing extra stress and wear.

Most that say that the spacer/adapter are causing issues also have lift and heavier tires and/or wheels. Plus many go to spacer/adapter when lifting which inherently shifts the wear patterns of many components and can lead to failures if any of those parts are not new when lifting.


2wd and 4x4 hubs are the same so no need for concern.
