there for my coilovers

thanks
You might want to check with your c/o manufacturer. They usually use custom width sets IIRC to clear the cap.

$.20/pc for a 3/4" HMS?!? Highly unlikely, that's way below cost for the stainless 303 stock to make them, let alone the machine time to turn them.

:think: I may be wrong, as i never buy them individually..They seem extremely cheap. The spacers i get from there are not stainless, just zinc, so maybe that explains the price.

Edit: Didnt see the picture or the fact that they are high misalignment spacers for mounting a coilover and not a standard heim misalignment spacer.

Can I use a different spacer for the top mount :hmm:
If there is a standard shaft i dont see why you cant use a standard misalignment spacer..

Misalignment spacers and high misalignment spacers are very very different. The names by themselves indicate a very big difference between the two being the effective misalignment angle.

You need the high misalignment spacers in order to drop the uniballs in the c/o caps ID to 1/2". The high misalignment spacers for c/o's are usually made for a larger mounting width than a rod end high misalignment spacer as well as with a smaller step at the ball.

I'd order through Poly or find another part distributor from your c/o manufacturer if you find you do need specific HMS's.

I believe the standard misalignment spacers would still work though. If a 1/2" inside dimension is still required due to the size of the coilovers shaft just buy a sleeve to fit inside the ball making it 1/2", if not just use a larger bolt. as far as the clearance of the coilover, the spacers i buy are fairly deep, i believe they would still work perfect. If it were me i would do this much rather than spend 8 dollars a piece on something that could be done for much cheaper. The large step at the ball can sometimes be found on standard misalignments too, although it isnt necessary..

Western speed and fuel might be able to order them.

I ordered mine online from midwest controls for my swaybar.

Can you take some pics during the install and measure the height before and after?? What lift do you have??
Yea ill take some pics should be on this weekend, im gonna be cranking them almost all the way up. I have the basic Pro Comp 6" Im thinking of putting an RC leveling kit with the GMR UCAs, and level out the back also for more lift, not sure tho
