    Default Isuzu Trooper coil spring spacers - who's using what?

    I've seen a bunch of vague references to 1.5-2" coil spring spacers from other vehicles being used on our Troopers - but haven't yet found a specific part number that's the "correct" one to use. Anyone out there with a Trooper running these? I've got an '02 Trooper and wanna get an inexpensive 1.5-2" of lift.

    Thanks!

    If you have stock springs I strongly suggest replacing the coils with OME coils. They ride nicer and don't bottom out like the soccer-mom soft stock coils. For around $185 OME 919s will get you 2" and carry loads much better. Everybody's definition of "inexpensive" varies, but to me it is worth the extra money.

    Agree with big swede, spacers do nothing to improve load handling ability or ride quality, and they tend to fall out on occasion. Now if you are just going for looks then have at it.
