Just wondering why people are using spacers for their wheels. I am not too smart with sort of thing.
Are the spacers just used to put the rear wheels the same "stance" as the front on the truck?
Or what....

Thanks.

The truck comes from the factory with a wider front stance. When I took measurements, it was 1.25 wider in the front than the rear. Then when I added the CST 4" lift spindles, it pushed it out another 3/4" for a total of 2". So I purchased 2" wheel spacers/adapters to get the front and rear track the same.

Dually peoples use spacers between the rear wheels so wider tires don't touch each other.

Your '97 is the same way. Install the spacers and make the front and back match. Your truck will drive 10times better on slushy and rain covered roads! My dad was going to take his '97 back becasue it handled like crap on slushy roads.
