My spacers will ship tommorow, they were backordered 2 weeks and the waiting list continues to grow.

A lot of GM HD 4x4 owners are buying these up. There is about a 2" difference between the front track width and the rear. causing poor tracking and understeer conditions.


I will post a few pics of my install when I get them and any other install issues and the results of the correction. check em' out here www.correctrack.com

Your close enough.

IMHO I just feel more comfortabe with the Guarantees (satisfaction and 100k mi.bearing) and the fact that these are machined from solid steel.

Everybody has there own reasons for their decisions.


But think about this. What are your wheels made of?


Hummm 150 extra bucks in your wallet. I have been running them for 42,000 miles so far.


Either way good luck!

I am glad you are happy with your choice. However... If you were not satisfied with your purchase then you would have a pair of $150 paperweights! Performance Wheel states "you buy it it's yours!" That's pretty hard to swallow. All I know is, If I'm not satisfied I get a full refund.

It is basically an extension of your hub which is made of steel.

correctrack spacers have been tested a diamler/chry to 9600 GVW.(has performance wheel had any real tests performed on the model designed for our trucks? If so I would like to know the results) Correctrack spacers are called for by the Gov. spec. on armored Suburbans for
Germany. They are Made of Steel for Load. Steel studs and nuts to lock stock alum. wheel in place.

vs.

Alum. spacer, steel stud and nut to alum. spacer to
steel stud and nut to alum. wheel. Each expands at a different rate.

I am by far no metallurgist but this has to count for something.

I pull daily, and I would imagine by your username you do the same. I just feel more comfortable with steel.

I respect your decision, you have your reasons and are comfortable with them. That's all that counts.

I hear you on the Newbie deal! LOL


It sounds like you spoke with the boys at Correct track. I called also because I coudn't make a decision between the two. The truth be told I had reservations about the aluminum spacers but I took the gamble.


The point here is to give everyone an opportunity to get help from others mistakes or good fortune.


Any ideas how I can spend that 150 bucks that I saved
.


Now I have to check your web site out!

I travel with my 3 1/2 and 1 1/2 yr old children. I can't afford to take that gamble

ouch
don't let those furd guys hear you say that

I guess a catasrophic head failure @ 70mph(in theory) could cause a major accident. (but most likely will leave you stranded)

A hub/spacer failure @ 70 mph is most definately an accident.

Just explain to me what these spacers are suppose to do? Why put them on in the first place? What trucks need these spacers? As you can see I'm in the dark as to why we need them.

They make the rear axle track the same as the front. The rear is about 1.5" narrower than the front. Better stability especially if you have a camper or tow a lot.
