I have found on Ebay several sellers of a new set of aluminum spacers like the rubber donut you have shown, goes on the end of a spring, and have seen them in use, they work fine. I've used the rubber in the past, on top of the spring and this works fine also.

Never tried the rubber donut between two coils, that should make the spring stiffer rate but not give as much added height installed that way.

It will just make it a lot stiffer and you will feel just about every little bump on the road. It will also give you more ground clearance in the back. You would be better off getting ac delco struts and ac delco coil springs . Unless you don't have the money get the spacers, better than bottoming out.

Well I have the spacers in. It did raise the front almost 2". As far as the back goes.. I don't really see any difference. The front was lowered 2" to start with 2" drop spindles. I also cut a full loop out of the coil which droped it another 2". I didn't have the wheels and tires that I was going to be running on it when I lowered it the first time. Now it sits fine. I do have to raise the headder drop tube about 1 1/2" though.. Al
