Question \

Hey guys hows it going?
Just installed my rear coil spacers today, got a quick question.

The install instructions just said to place the spacer on the shock mount and install the shock above it without securing it any way?
I guess it's not necessary to secure it due to the spring pressure on it?
I saw some spacers that you have to drill and tap into the spring mount to secure the spacer down, but I guess not this one?


Thanks
Justin

Posted in wrong section, sorry.

Correct, the spring pressure will keep them in place. However if you hit bumps hard enough you will hear them moving around slightly. That's one of the reasons I'm glad not to be running them anymore...

I just installed a 1.5 spacer aswell and seems fine so far. Did you end up finding someone for a good alignment?
