Coil Spacer help

So im thinking about making coil spacers... How do i get the coil spacer to not move from above the coil. Like when i hit a bump wont the spacers move and let the spring pop off...

Gravity.

There's nothing special about them. Some of the smaller ones (e.g., 3/4") actually sit entirely within the pocket that covers the spring, but longer ones will reach beyond it. Either way, they don't "snap" in or somehow attach.

May I ask why you'd do this? Small coil spacer kits are cheap, and bigger ones require more parts than you're going to be able to make. Are you really sure whatever material you're going to use is going to be up to the task and that you're going to design them properly?

I'm only going two inches until I can afford my lift. And my dad is a fabricator and he does this kinda stuff for a living and yes I have no doubt that I can make one to last for a month

I have built a lot of things over the years so I could save money. It's not worth it. 90% of the time you can't even come close to cost, if you do the fit and finish will probably not be there, and you'll have hours and hours invested in basically nothing.

Here, here, here, and here are some cheap options in your height area.

And, as a forum member, make sure you PM the Q-tec rep to ask for the lowest possible price and free shipping. Check Amazon too to make sure they're not available for less anywhere else.

Are you really going to be able to beat $100 with home fabrication?

Agree with these guys. Their cheap but IMO- they perform well.
