Do you mean shock spacers?
Clever design - do they work okay when the shocks move or does the little cut out catch ( if you know what I mean, hard to tell from pics )
Hope they work good tho!

Fitted BIG JIMNY steering damper brackets+Armstrong damper.
The BIG JINMY steering damper brackets are well made and take about 45 Min's to fit.;)
The steering feels a lot better now and a lot less twitchy on the road with the A/T tyres.
A very good mod for about £58 and makes driving the Jimny on the motorway a lot easier.B)
