Swapped my wheels today and noticed shock boot was damaged and spring spacer broke. Got the joy of working out what size to replace it now as was fitted when purchased. Just wondered how common spacers break ??

They are usually fairly tough but I guess it's down to the durometer of the polyurethane used and the duty cycle the car has been exposed to. It could be a good time to look at longer springs instead of spacers?

Just rip the shock boots off. All they do is hold moisture and muck in anyway.

If you're hell bent on having them I've some I'll send you for the cost of postage.
