Armada rear springs or Rancho spacer?

Postby pyro4ik » Sun Jun 27, 2021 11:08 am

Looking to lift the front 2.5 or 3", but not sure which way to go with the rear? Any thoughts or experiences?

No wrong or right. Just depends what you're looking to do with your vehicle. If you want looks, go with the spacer. If you want something that performs better than factory, go with the Armada springs. Both are inexpensive so even if one doesn't work out, try the other.

Do they both rear options have alignment issues?

If I go w/ the rear spacer, would 2", 2.5", or 3" up front be best? I'm looking for the Pathy to be level if possible.

Thanks!

I'm not quite sure if you'll have rear camber issues since I didn't go that route. Palmerwmd did go the Armada springs route months ago and I think he didn't run into any rear camber issues. I'll let him chime in to confirm though.

If you want level, I wouldn't even raise the rear as there's already a rake with the front being lower. You can possibly get away with a 2" lift in the front only. You'll most likely need aftermarket UCAs to clear CBC though.
