Just trim the springs,but do it a few coils at a time.That should work fine.

Just go to the forum in here Shock,spring spacers???? There is a link in there that IMO is the best shock mod. I done it to mine and it made a world of difference. Handles and jumps great. Good luck

Well since the idea of adding fuel line as a spacer was so easy, I just went ahead and did it. It looks great and should perform really well. But I won't know until Spring comes and the snow goes away. Or at least until a parking lot is clear of snow and water.

Thanks for the help, guys.

P.S. Yes, I know my Big Joe tires are "backwards." [8D]
