Spacer for BB dont fit right

I picked up a set of 4 wheel customs spacers. They have been sitting on a shelf for a while so decided to put them on along with the new shocks I had. Well i got the spring out and went to put the coil on the spacer. The spring does not seat on the spacer properly. I tried all different combinations of spacer, isolator and coil but nothing seemed even remotely safe. This was all on the back. I figure that these do not, despite what the site says, fit properly. Now my main question is will they fit on the front being that the front is different or should i just get a whole new set.

If you got some pics we could see we might be able to give you the right answer. I know i had the bb from rough country and it didnt fit as good as the bb i got from daystar some times paying a little more is better. It should be the same spacer front or rear for a zj.

Some pics might help. If those don't work out for you, CrawlerReady sells a really nice fitting set for pretty cheap and you even get a nice little "swag bag" along with it

I just put on 4wheelcustoms 2.25bb the front fit perfect. The back I had issues with felt sloppy but when putting on raising rear I guided them into place. Wish they would have fit as nice as the front though..oh and the DW showed its ugly face ..had brolaw check it out believes it just bad rotors(warped )..

toss the rear ones and get a set of stock front springs to put in the rear. not only are the rear spacers designed totally wrong they swallow the spring post which puts you at risk for losing a spring very easily.
