                    That's perfect(If we're judging by 'looks'). For some reason I don't remember J-Stocks being quite that low.

                              spring pads

                              After looking through this thread, I see some people are running thinner spring pads or none at all. Where do you get the smaller spring pads? Does going with no spring pads create squeaks? Any drawbacks to no spring pads? It seems like a good method to fine tune the ride height.
                              thanks, Andy
