Thanks! I checked out a used 15’ PW today. Is that a spacer above the spring?

I know Thuren’s website recommends against spacers on years 14+. Is that the general consensus here as well?

Yes, your spring shouldn't bend 3 times lol. Spacers bad... but it's also a cheap and easy fix.

Yup. Spacers are cheap, that's why people do them.

Hello! I've visited the site a few times and thought it was time to register. I drive an 07 PW now but am looking to get into a 4th gen here pretty soon. Appreciate all the info that I've found so far!
What part of Idaho are you from? I’m over in meridian. On my second power wagon now.

I hang out in Boise. There is another guy over here who isn't on this forum, but we've gone out exploring and he comes to PWIM. Might be time to organize something locally.
