Want to raise the rear lift up a bit so its not droopy when fully loaded. Somewhere between 1/2" and 1" would be good.

Can't seem to find where to buy them and Christo doesn't have them.

Thanks

Christo should have ARB trim packers! Two of them will be a little over 1/2"

I wonder why when I asked him if he had spacers he didn't say that? Must be the communication problem, I'll have to ask with a So African accent :D

Thanks Kev

Thanks Tim.

I looked on their site last night and couldn't find them.

Those will be perfect for what I want to do

Airliard offered some 1.5" rears to me a while back He might still have them. Might be too much height for you, but thought I'd pass this along. Spacers sound like the way to go if you don't a want stiffer rate that come with higher lift springs.

Mark Hawley makes these (http://metaltech4x4.com/products_80spacers.htm) for the front. Wonder if he'd make some rears?

I bought some OME spacers from MAF about 18 month ago. They came in 10mm and 5mm and you could stack 2 of them. Have you called MAF? I'd be surprised if OME isn't still making these. You could do a 10mm up front and 20mm rear to get what you want. I think I paid about $12 each at the time.

$30 isn't bad for a 1" poly spacer if you need that much.

You would have to ask for packers not spacers. I have no idea why they are called packers, that may clear up the communication. 60/pair is a lot cheaper than any aluminum spacer. later Robbie

Ken we have trim packers in 10mm, however thought you asked if we had 1" spacers like the front ones. Those we do not have.

"Right on....I'll be right over, go ahead and set them out for me and I'm so happy I will pay you double!"

Same reason you have a bonnet covering your engine compartment. You might be surprised to know that you could need "bonnet shocks" one day :eek::Princess::D
