Re: coil spacer

Try Matt's Bowties in the east bay, they might have them. If not Summit is a good choice also Classic Industries in LA. I get orders next day from Summit and Classic so you should too.

There are different thicknesses of coil spring spacers available - I got both 1/4" (.250) and 7/16" (.437) from Summit.

Re: coil spacer

These are for someone else but my car had a left right un even ride after I put in 1.5 drop springs and we could not find out why until I repalce the old control arms with tubular ones. The upper spring perch on the drivers side was somehow sqweezed and the fatter eilbach spring would not sit all the way down. So it looked cocked. had to use a spacer on the opposite side. sits perfect now.. thanks for your help..You know, I think I have the only first gen camaro in SF. Never ever see one around.. Stay cool in Gilroy brother!! Dan

Re: coil spacer

I bought them from my local auto/truck spring shop. Aluminum - cheap.
