    Hi, Basicly the car is a FWD 1997 TDi. Basicly at the rear standard shocks, the bottom of the rear shocks the bush sticks out an inch so the total length of the bottom end of the rear shock standard is 3 inches, my coilovers are 2inch and i do not have that extra inch sticking out, do i just get any bush to use as spacer or what?

    Any help appriceated. thanks

    are they new? surely they come with a spacer
    if your old shocks are scrap you could chop the extending piece off and use that
