i was looking through my rockymountainatvmc catalog and i saw some wheel spacers for like $70.00. i was wondering if they are worth the money to get a little bit wider stance and to try and accomplish a little bit better handling?? they are for the front wheels. any suggestions and comments are helpful!
here is a link for the spacers i was looking at...

They work, and they are cheaper, but i dont recommend them. It puts alot more stress on the bearings and studs and such. If your not a really tight budget its better to get some a-arms and axle.

So would I but $$$. If you look at the total difference it is quite abit more then spacers. If it was closer it might be eaiser to push him toward that. But you should be ok on some good quality spacers for a short time.

You put on +2 or +3 a-arms on and you are not done. You then have to put on longer aftermarket shocks. The stockers work like shit on longer a-arms.

Hey Flynbyu up front how much width do these spacers give you? An inch or two total? Was looking for some spacers to run basically tight trails with the occassional straights with fast turns. But want to keep the front not wider than 2 inches.
TIA 8)
