Sorry - I stand corrected - my spacers use 4 long studs screwed into the aluminum collar - they have a socket head so there able to be tightened. I wouldn't use anything like what you posted. If they weren't tightened down right you'd have a shaker for sure.

They work with steel or aluminum wheels. This is the spacers I would recommend. https://www.ebay.com/itm/2-5-Thick-4...AAAOSwImRYSvHT
Those stud spacers will eat on the inside of an aluminum rim. Where the wrench flats are cut - the the lug nuts will have more contact on the outside rim then the stud on the inside. Once you bugger up the inside it will never run straight again. No I wouldn't use thread locker.

It all depends on how there used. In the stock G2 rear mount they didn't have enough lift. When I stretched my cart I put the shocks out in back of the axle and they work ok on the road -- off road -- they suck. Also it's difficult to adjust the springs in the stock position.

So many mixed reviews on these stud type spacers some feel they a safe and some not? Can some more people comment on if they are safe and if any have witness problems?

There is nothing wrong with the spacers you ordered. The one's that are saying they would never use them . They have never used them. Just a bunch of hot air

I wouldn't use ANY thread locker!
With aluminum rims, it's a good idea to re-torque them at least once a year,
and eventually you may have to take your rims and tires off to fix something.
