Get them custom fabricated and save 60 dollars. I remember I payed 80 bucks for two this time, that night I considered hanging myself.

Those sizes you want are kinda big. Id go with the H&R Trak spacers for sure.

I totally used stacked washers to estimate how big of a spacer I could fit without rubbing. Not even kidding.

Ok, I never put weight on the wheel. I removed the rear spring, mounted a wheel with washers and jacked the wheel up into the fender to examine how close it got.
