Excuse my ignorance but i just picked up my rear spring spacers and was expecting them to be made of a different material. I was expecting a dense rubber that would be some what malleable. These are a hard plastic or teflon?

Can you post a pic? Who makes them? The reason I ask, is there are different manufactures. The ones I had on my old ZJ were not hard pieces. The were like you described your expectations so it would absorb shock and hard bumps.

Do you have a pic of the back of your Jeep?

The ones I installed were a hard plastic type material, not rubber. In my very humble opinion I'm ok with the spring compressing against a hard material vs. digging into a malleable rubber. I haven't had any issues with them, still rides very smooth.

I had it done at the local tire & lube shop. Took the guy about an hour and that included an alignment.

I just swapped my TJ 3/4" spacers for JK 1/2" spacers. Makes it appear much closer to level but still a little rake. My spacers were a hard plastic but much wider base than the poly TJ ones so I feel better about them. They're pancaked between the rubber perch and frame so they're solid.
