Lower control arm bushing tool help needed

Hi,

I need some help with the removal/installation of the lower control arm bushings.
I see the Ridetech 85000009 tool, what basically washers and some sleeve and a threaded rod.
The only thing i need is the size of the spacer what prevents the control arm legs collapsing when You press the bushing out. I did push the bushings out without a spacer and now all f.cked. I need to know what was the original spacing between, so I can fabricate the right spacer.
Thanks for the help.

My restoration project:

One and a half inches should be a tight fit.
