I had to grind down the front wheel studs about 1/8th - 1/4th inch. Update - Just checked the spacer torque for the second time since putting these adapters on and no torque was lost. We also ended up having new blocks made for the back so that there wasn't so much air in the air bags. The ride is much better with so swaying.
They look fine to me. They're aluminum and I noticed the price is for 2 ... so 4 = 480.00. If it were me, it's important to know they're made/machined from billet 6160 T-6 and I did not see that in the description. I agree... Aluminum adds less unsprung weight to the suspension but steel is more forgiving. However I see no reason why these spacers would be just fine and dandy though.
I will say without reservation, there are lots of horror stories with Aluminum spacers. FYI... anytime aluminum and dissimilar metals are combined/bolted together, use a inhibiting compound. I like NO-OX special ID and it has tons of other uses as well.
I used the "cheap" ebay spacers that ARE hubcentric and they are perfect. Personally I think it's a waste to buy the exact same thing for more money but others disagree. My 2 cents.
