    Anybody use that Belltch coil spacer for the "Chevy Lean"

    Im trying to install this piece of crap

    everytime I let the jack off the lower control arm the coil slides off the spacer and becomes uncentered on the upper spring pocket.

    I cant see how this thing would even hold, being plastic.

    Help?

    Haven't used them, but maybe some electrical tape to hold them on the spring while your installing them. How thick are they?

    I know when I just did my upper control arms and balljoints I used some 3/4" (i believe) rubber hose from home depot and slide it around one of the upper and lower coils for the rubber isolators, since mine were gone.

    yeah i did use elect tape.....

    the problem is not keeping them together during installation

    I can use a long prybar to keep the spring in place while my buddy jacks up the LCA....we put the nut on the balljoint....all good

    as soon as the jack comes down and the spring decompresses a bit, it starts creaking (tick tick tick tick) and slowly moves to the side.

    This Amazon review is exactly my problem:

    I don't see how they would work. I know some guys have used 1/2" different rear blocks to try and correct the lean

    my blazer leans too after I dropped 3/3 but was hoping I would be able to cure that when I finish lowering the truck (going 5/6 or 5/7) and new ball joints and bushings all the way around. but for some reason my truck started leaning towards the driver side after I blocked up the axel. I have checked and everything is in correctly but still leans. so I think that might work is using the differential blocks. also did you mean 1"-2" difference or 1/2" difference because I have never seen 1/2" blocks but I could make some pretty easy out of steel or aluminum
