Running 1 inch urethane rear spacers want to go to one and a half inch urethane rear spacer can’t find any for 2019 ram classic. Why wouldn’t these work or any other urethane spacer for prior year 2013 to 2018?

The '19-'24 Classic trucks are still the Gen4 suspension found in the '13-'18 trucks.

So the one and a half inch rear spacer I posted would that fits a 16, 17 or an 18 model year would also fit a 19 classic? Just weird how many parts stop at 18 and don’t include the Classics..

Correct. Anything for a 13-18 will fit a classic

Just a follow up question. Right now I have the Daystar 1 inch urethane top mount spacer. Looks like the 1.5 inch Daystar spacer is a bottom mount sits on the perch? Any advantages or disadvantages to this style? Also, what is your preference urethane or the many aluminum or steel bottom mount spacers I see available? Thanks for your help guys.

No real advantages or disadvantages with top vs bottom. The metal vs poly is pretty much a personal preference as well.

Metal on metal or metal on polyurethane no difference in noise sound dampening? Daystar touts it being quieter with their polyurethane. Seems like with the metal spacers pretty much the same as factory metal on metal wouldn’t be any difference?

So these 1.5” Daystar urethane spacers they show as good for 2013 to 2016 should be OK for my 2019 Classic? By the looks of them I’m assuming they are bottom mount?

Some people claim the poly ones can make more noise (squeaking?)…dono, never had em.
