Please describe/show pics of "Homemade teflon strut spacers in the rear".

I had '08 FXT struts on my '90 and the front sat about 1" higher than the back. Did the spacers fix that?

Thanks,
TD

Hey, it does look good. Lucky dog!

BTW, put your location in your ID info--helps people "place" you when you post in the future.

I used a top hat from the rear strut, a clear piece of lexan and verniers to make a template.....then used .250 teflon plate to make the spacers. I used two per side, and low profile lock nuts to keep it all in safety.

I work as an aircraft mechanic so the time/materials/tools were all free @ work. These spacers are very popular on forester running STI struts or Impreza wago's running STI struts, and can be bought at many places.
Just search "Saggy Butt Shims" on google.

They definately helped, but the car still sits about 3/8" higher in the front (measuring from the rocker) The wheel archs on these cars sit funny and make the car look like it's dragging it's rump roast to start with, so measure from the rocker, not the wheel arch.
