now that i've gotten the railroad tie bumpers off of my car, it sits a little higher than i'd like. i dont want to modify the suspension really, as i like the way it feels and it's all Dinan stuff (springs n swaybars) but a friend told me, depending on what's already in the car, that i can lower it a bit by switching out these spring pads? how can i identify 'em and where can i get lower profile ones?

No dot, 1 dot, 2 dot, and 3 dot. Here is a picture of my complete set I just took a few minutes ago. I dont know if you can get them anywhere though at this point. I bought this set off of ebay from 2002AD when they were selling them a little while ago. As you can see they are easily identifiable.

No dot being the shortest, lowest ride height while 3 dot is the highest.

At their lowest point (shown on all of them in the picture):

0 dot ~5mm

1 dot ~10mm

2 dot ~15mm

3 dot ~20mm

(I JUST took these measurements with my calipers....)

lol, boy does that make me feel dumb. but yea I knew they were different but hadnt looked at them for quite a while and just assumed wrong. Not only is the hole size different, but they dont even look the same! The bottom (top in the car) of the 'top' ones have a little indentation, to lock them in, in a certain position? Anyhow, I'm wrong, but those are the sizes and how to identify em.

The ones in the picture that are on top of the 2 dot pads.... no dot and the little divot cut out are supposed to be ony on the bottom (trailing arm.

However you can use those on the top of the spring too if you want, and that is the lowest heighth adjustment other than swapping or cutting springs.

Seems its coming down that all i knew that was correct was that theyre different! I didnt where they go though. That got my head spinning lol! confused.gifIt should be all cleared up now. grin.gif So my previous post thinking they go on top is my imagination.

3 real dotted ones, and ones without dots that supposedly go on the trailing arm which are different but might be able to be substituted for the dotted donuts.......brother!!!!! I think we answered the original question by now right? :) I have the flu, im going to rest.
