Spacers

Thinking about getting some spacers for the rear. How will this effect the ride? I was thinking about going with H&R. Are there any disadvantages. Im going for a more flush look.

The ride quality is not affected by spacers.

As stated above they do not affect the ride at all. We actually offer the entire H&R catalog as well as several other spacer options, all of which can be found below...

H&R is the way to go, we carry their TRACK+ Spacers as they are hub centric and forged alloy to avoid cracking and vibrations. If you need help sizing the spacers, let me know.

They actually make your ride very slightly softer due to extra leverage on the spring point.

I like my Turner Motorsport spacers.... hard anodized, pockets machined around the rim to help with removal, and excess material removed to reduce weight as much as possible. I'm running 12.5 mm rear... no complaints
