I was just wondering...what size should I use if I want to push my stockies out a bit? I'd like it to be pushed out as much as possible.

Also, where should I get em? What brand?

And one more thing...how do they install?

I've been wondering the same thing and by doing this would it make the car more unstable casue it's pushing the wheels further away from the hub?

From what I hear it shouldn't. Most spacer are made so well you can't even tell. I just widens the stance thats all...

I talked to my local shop and they told me It wouldn't do any good. Just make it look better. So that kinda makes me wonder if I should even mess with it.

there are many different sizes, but consider the consequences of using them: wear and tear. any offset different than stock is gonna take a toll on your suspension, especially the ball joints, and where them out faster. How much faster is not known, but it inevitably will lead to a sooner than normal ball joint issue. You could probably get away with a 5mm spacer no problem, but 1omm or 20mm and you may need longer wheel studs and then the ball joint wear will begin. Hope this helps you decide!
