For all the members with coilovers I have a question. Im having a problem with raising the rear up to the height i need. Reason being im realy pushing to get my wheels that i have mounted on the carthey are just sitting around and i dont want that. i need them to clear the rear fenders with tires or im goingto have to do some serious modification to the rear The wheels that i have are15x8 with a -12 offset. I know it sounds crazy and they are going to stick out but ive got that covered its just the getting to that height that im troubled with. Second i cant ship my car back to the states with it being this low i checked that already. So back to my question ,Does anyone make coilover spacers? Im taking the helper spring out but i need something to put more pressure on the main spring to raise it and the only thingim coming up with is 4x4 ****. Any help would be great 

thanks

Remove the rear spring with the adjuster and fit a pair of eibech or h and R springs. They come up as pairs on thee bay of thieves from time to time. Other option it to fit another pair of the top rubbers that are between the body and the top of the spring.

the helper spring keeps everything in place when the load is reduced removing it will lower your van more. is the issue that you have run out of adjustment on the coilover or is it seized  ?
