Default 1/4 inch wheel spacers

new tires sidewall just barely rub the sway bars on full lock. 1/4 spacers up front a good idea or not?

That is fine. Might need longer wheel studs depending on how much thread is left.

or just don't go full lock on steering...isn't that hard....

I figured id post beens only 1 person has. pretty much what he said. I have known a few over on the f150 forums that have ran them and been fine, even up to 1 inch spacer. he pretty much hit the nail on the head. on some you might have to trim the wheel studs if its tiny spacer like yours because they will hit on ur rim more than likely. There is alot of people that would say dont do it, they arent safe or w.e but all the people that I know that have ran them pretty much said they are fine. its just like anything else, always make sure they are tightened to the proper setting and check them often to make sure. As long as you keep on them and check them out you shouldn't have any problems at all. Zach
