Has anyone fitted these, or anything similar to the Calibra???

They come in the following sizes: 6mm, 8mm, 10mm and 12mm

Any information will be much appreciated... :clap:

I think they are fitted to adjust the ride height, with Lowering Springs...

But is there any such a part, fitted to the Calibra Rear Springs as Standard???

As My Rear Springs don't appear to be level, and was wondering if this might be the cause!!! :think:

They fit under the rear coil spring. I made them out of a bit of 6mm conveyor belt to help reduce the rear camber until I can alter the suspension arm.

Did You do the 'Rear Springs' Job Yourself?

I was wondering if there are any of these fitted already, as Standard at the Rear Springs???

It can be seen clearly in this photo, at the base of the spring...

So I recently fitted some New KYB Rear Shocks with K-Mac Springs...
Being that the Springs lowered the car too much, I fitted some Whiteline Rear Spring Pad Bushing, to adjust the ride height, to my liking...
I'm really pleased with the Performance and Looks...
