I just got my leveling kit from Supreme Suspension and I will be installing it this weekend. Will I have to remove the skid plate to install the kit? Any words of wisdom. I have searched on here like crazy but haven't seen if I need to remove the skid plate or not... Thanks

differential drop spacers. should have 2 long bolts with it.

FYI when yout put back the strut with spacer installed. you have to rotate the strut for it to line up when you hook up the LCA to the strut.

No long bolts with the kit... just the 8 bolts for the blocks.

It is difficult to tell from the pics what you have, but they are NOT diff drop spacers if it is anything like the kit I just got from them. I asked them the same question. They are some type of "Strut Mount Spacer" according to them and are only needed on select trucks/types of shocks. I wasn't too worried about it because my truck doesn't need them.

Yeah I guess I should have told you exactly what my truck is. 2010 DC 5.7 4x4 TRD. Just trying to make it sit level. I already have 275/70R18 Discoverer Cooper ST MAXX tires under it. Just getting a better look for it.

I have had the kit before, and yes they are diff drop spacers for the front differentials. Differentials have 3 bolts 2 for the front and 1 for the back. those 2 are for the front bolts. im suprise the did not include that in there.

Strut spacers from supreme are black.

Those spacers that you have look way bigger than what I got in my kit.

It seems to me that you are correct and they do not need to be used?

Looks like you need to either pry the strut up in there with a pry bar. Or get a spring compressor. I used the pry bar method. It's just that way cause you added the spacer. Nothing wrong, you just have to force it back in. It's this very reason that you are getting lift. Spring will constantly be under pressure forcing the suspension to lift your truck.
