    I'll have one on the hoist in an hour. I'll try to get you some measurements.

    I had to do the same thing to my rzr, I grabbed some bumpstops from a Chevy truck, drilled a hole in the center and they've been in there for years now. I used to bottom out my shocks constantly even with them cranked up all the way. It does limit your travel slightly though and if you are constantly bottoming out your shocks they might break the mounts eventually. I've seen it on trucks with sagged out springs many times.

    The spring seat on the trailing axle is 1 7/8".

    The spring id itself was like 2-1/8" iirc. There's a rubber insulater between them

    If your going to a yard honda fit (2007) springs fit nice and give you a little more headroom for weight. They raised the ride height like 3/4" as well as being a stiffer spring. the new fiesta springs fit too but the fiesta springs are kind of too long and a pain to get from the car

    Depending How much time you have PM me i could mail you my fit springs for cost of shipping and you can have them (free). One less thing I'll have too move...

    Yeah you're right the spring is 2 1/8", the perch is 1 7/8 on the axle, rubber spacer takes up the remaining 1/4". Wasn't there a thread about the different springs that fit the Mirage, I thought Yaris may have fit as well?

    I've got H&R springs on there already, but I was considering getting some thicker spring seats to fine tune the height and lift it up maybe half an inch.

    There is a thread. Yaris rear springs, in my opinion, are perfect. Ride height is not altered and they are quite firmer than stock. Makes the car feel like a normal car, not harsh or overly firm, just gets rid of the wallow, makes it feel secure. Front springs are still way to soft though and we need to find a cheap alternative that preserves ride height.

    Stock rubber spring spacers dont fit the yaris springs perfectly, need to modify them, or order the yaris ones.
