    So I have a little dilemma. I'm having trouble finding lift springs that aren't back ordered for weeks but i can find spacers. Both will accomplish the height i want, the spacers are a little cheaper. I know the springs are probably ideal but the whole lift thing is purely aesthetic is not like I'm gonna be out rock crawling our something. Do would I be crazy to get spacer blocks instead of springs?

    Nope, as long as you install them correctly and they don't collapse on you. Just remember that you're not gaining any travel with the spacer lift, just physical height. Don't exceed the safe angles for your suspension joints with the lift either.

    Yeah you're good. Some of the cheaper ones are welded tube and thin plate- those are the ones you have to worry about. The thin ones I have on my truck are billet. :)

    the crv's tend to sag a little in the back so im thinkin about doing an extra .5" in the back to make up for it a little when i have shit back there

    ok so Ive been talking to Owen about making a set of spacers for the cr-v and we were discussing making them like this company does where they bolt them to the top of the strut and then thread in a new stud or if it would be better the put new studs in the strut? how hard would it be to press out the old ones and put in longer ones?

    Yeah, you just replace the studs in the top hats. Easy. Either way is good.

    i think they are 225/70/15. I know of other people running that size but I'm kind of thinking a 215 would have been better for my power
