My 74 Avanti has a rather thick Aluminum spacer under the coil spring and a thin steel spacer on top of the spring.
I have a set of MOOG CC-655 coil springs that I will install when I've reconditioned/rebuilt the suspension. I would like to eliminate the Aluminum spacer as I assume that will set the car a bit lower and I currently have no plans to cut them further.
The control arms/A-arms are solid with little to no rust pitting in the seats for the coil springs so my plan is to leave the spacers out.
I'm curious about the experience of the forum members in doing this. Did you just leave 'em out or add a pad of some type (thin steel/urethane) to the interface area. Or as an addition, What would you recommend?
