Yes it is possible to put spacers at the top of your shocks. You can use washers or a spacer. I found them at Home Depot.

What I did is unbolt the top and compress it down and pull the shock back to get at it. I took of the large washer on there and put a couple of washers on. I've seen it on here that you only need to put 3/4 on an inch of washers or spacer. How much you can get on depends on the shock. I was only able to get about 3/8 inch of washers on.

Not at first but that was because I had my torsion bars cranked too much. Turned them down a few turns and I think it rides better than stock. If anyone has driven through a harvested wheat field you know how the ride is going against the grain. No pun intended. I hit about 40 doing this and was surprised that the back end did not slide around. I amm running the RMX shocks from Les Schwab.

I think the pic was in somebodys, garage I can't find it anywhere.
The lower shock mount has a bolt attaching it to the lower a-frame, put a solid spacer in there & might need a longer bolt.
