Hi, I'm looking to lower my 05X, but I'm a suspension noob.

Hoping someone can please explain top hats, adjustable top hats and saggy butt spacers?

Cheers

Saggy butt spacers

Top Hats

Too expensive for my tastes, especially butt spacers. A few hand tools could do the job and spacers could be customized to fit the height desired.

Cheers. Put simply, spacers are for adding height and top hats affect strut geometry (and adjustable top hats allow you to adjust that geometry)?

I'm no expert but yes, it appears some tophats allow for caster increase to satisfy Rally drivers' preferences.
