I see it now in post # 1486. Black painted sheet metal inside the rubber. That is all I remember in my car.
..check out the link to CA spacers in post # 1496...Don't recall those in any of the GTVs I have had. But it has been a while since I worked on rear springs. The rear spacers look like they are essential, not like the front spacers at all. Any images of original rear spacers? That may jog my memory!
Don't know yet. I don't have the any of the spacers so I'm not sure they if they sit inside the thin sheet metal spring pan or not. I won't fit any spacer at this point until I see the car's stance once completed and on the ground...stay tuned.1494 has the ones that are in my car. The other 11.5mm will raise the back an inch. Yes, no, otherwise??
