    Hello forum, I have had my Brickwerks lowered springs (Eibach) and Bilstein shock in my van for under a year and whilst they work great, I find the van sits lower in the rear, its not sag it always has, I do have a Subaru engine fitted so maybe in weighs more than a 1.9 WBX, I know places like Go West sell the spacer pads, but i was wondering if anyone has made some or know where I could buy some in Australia.
    Also how thick are they, if I fit 10mm spacers will I get 10mm rise.

    I was thinking a nylon kitchen chopping board would do to make some out of but wasn't sure if this thickness of the board is thick enough.

    Regards
    Jason

    The chopping boards come in various sizes or double them up. just don't tell your wife where they went.

    I read somewhere (thesamba?) that 10mm spacer will give 20 mm rise, just because of the position of the spring pad on the arm.

    Thanks for your replies, strange my wife has asked me if I have seen the chopping board. (-: I found a template on the web and will start with a 10mm chopping board as thickness and see what height I will achieve.
