I have them. I only put 2 of the 3 in, but should have put all 3 in. Even then, I would still have a bit of lean. With 2 in, I am still almost 1/2" lower on driver's side. Install is pretty straight forward in you are familiar with a spring compressor. I did mine at a shop with a hydraulic one, so it was cake. Just be careful if you're doing it with a mechanical one in your driveway/home garage.

thanks for the reply. I have used a spring compressor before, so no problem there. My truck only has 3/4 inch lean with the tank full. So what do you think? Install all 3 spacers?

I have all three Beltech shims on driver side. Its pretty easy install with spring compressor. I still have them on even with my 2.5" front lift too. It sits level now.

will this fix the lean all around or just in the front???
Just the front. They are spacers that sit on top of the spring on non-4wd trucks. Jsut fixinf the front helps alot. The rear would be tough because of the leaf springs. Adding a leaf would gain too much height like 1.5 to 2.5 inches...

Did you do 3in drop before?
