Coil Spring Spacer

I have a Mustang II suspension in a '33 Ford I'm building and am having trouble with a little wheel rub on the front fender brace bolts when I hit a bump. I have 2" dropped spindles. Does anyone know where I can get a spacer/shim for the top of the coil spring? I don't want to use the wedge things because I don't want to increase the spring rate.

I've searched the internet without any luck. I know the offroad folks sell some to raise trucks, jeeps, etc but they start at 2" and I only need 1" or so. Plus they are for late model springs that are 5" or 5 1/2" OD and MII springs are 4 5/8" OD. Is my thinking correct - will a 1" spring spacer raise my fender approx. 1"?

I hate to replace the springs just to get 1" taller. Any ideas or advice?

Malc, thanks for the reply. I had looked a that site but at $87 US I think I could buy a taller spring from Eaton. That may end up being the solution.

I was looking through my mags as I recently saw some spacers
as new parts,but failed to find them.Maybe itīs a bit dodgy putting spacers on the front coils.
