(or at least I do not think it is correct). It appears to be plastic and is held in place by retainers on the back of the posts that...

    New Spring advice front and rear, Height of fenders, Passenger side rear is lower by 5/8" now....or maybe a bit lower.

Measurements are without a spare tire in back (by phone is my flat fixer, and I drive this car close to home only for now). I don't want to raise her much, as i hate open wheel well, and i went...

Are...
