URGENT Question Re: Spacers and Elongated Bolts

For those of you who have 15mm Spacers, do you need extended bolts or will the stock bolts work?

I'm looking to order H&R Spacers and was told I don't need extended bolts for 12 and 15 mm spacers.

I say this is urgent because I can't order these until I have an answer. Thanks.

Def get longer bolts. Or look into a company that includes them with the spacers. BMS does. $100/set per axle or they were when I bought mine (15 & 12).

Not even sure if stock bolts have enough length to reach the hub with 15mm spacer. I think not. Yes you need longer bolts. Stock bolts are about 25mm long, so that plus spacer thickness will give you the length you need. I even got longer bolts with my 5mm spacers.

I have not purchased spacers yet. When I do, I will get the extended lugs for sure. Anyone know which vendor offers the best deals on these around here?

Spacers

I bought mine from Dubstopimports. Black anodized, 15mm & 12mm. Around $65.00 for the 15's, and around $60.00 for the 12's with bolts. Excellent product, no vibration what so ever. H & R, are around $100 plus. Hope this helps.

Even my 12mm spacers had appropriately sized bolts that came with them.

Don't screw around with this one...

spacers are not something you want to cheap out on, look for name brand. I use H&R like the standard for spacers, i strongly suggest not to get ebay shit or ichiba spacers..trust me when i say that. Eibach, RS technik, TMS and Rogue Engineering are some great ones.

Forged alloy and hubcentric are the key things to look for.

I have tried contacting these guys a couple times with no response. Are they still in business?

^this. so I bought a pair from pyspeed (RS technik) and they are great. I also had a fitment problem in the front and bought Rogue Engineering for the front last minute. Those are great as well. Any of these above mentioned ones work well but the two i mentioned I personally know they do.
