    I have read on here that no one makes the LCA rubber bumper with the long stud to go thru the Z28 spacer and bolt to the arm. Well, I just got back from Advance Auto with Moog part#K6606 LCA rubber bumper. The stud looks like it was made for the length of the spacer. I was all ready to weld a piece of a bolt to the stud to make it thru the spacer, but no need to do that. Just thought you might like to know this(if ya don't allready lol)

    P.S. Yes I made the spacers..............

    Great sketch Guy, looks like my scribling :crazy:

    Were the factory '74 spacers that thick (3/4") or is that just the size of the stock you used? I was under the impression that all the spacers (70-81) were the same thickness. The other measurements match mine.

    Confessing, I had to make one of mine. The parts car I had was missing one & I copied it so they'd match. Not trying to fool anyone - I just wanted the handling benefit on the cheap.

    Maybe that is a question one of the guys (Jim, Chuck, Ron, Bud, Mark, etc) in the Original Drivetrain section can answer?

    70-74 = 3/4" ; 77-81 = 1/2" ??
