I bought rear coilovers from a forum member without mounting hardware. I know 3/4" OD and 1/2" ID, but how long are the spacers? Could someone measure theirs for me. MkIII, 8.8 live axle, 4 bar.
thnx,
Ed

Pics I have seen of others have the bottom end offset in the bracket away from the axle. Also, Is it true that for a stock engine you put the top in the top most bolt location.

The sizes for the 3 link are in the guide in my sig. Not sure if the 4 link brackets are the same but they will give you an idea at least.
