Any other ~1" WJ spacers out there?

So my OME springs settled down to about 2.5", they originally sat at 3" and it looked really nice. Now that they settled, I want to get it back to 3" but I would rather not have to sell them and buy 3" coils.

Im looking for some 1" or less spacers for a WJ but the only ones I can find are the 3/4" ones by kevinsoffroad. However, they are about $95 shipped! wtf! I bought my 2" BB for that much a few months back (which I sold).

So are there any other options besides kevinsoffroad for some small spacers, or do I have to cough up the $95 for KOR's?

Well, for $70 + shipping: 10mm spacers

Any other alternatives? If Im spending $70+ I might as well go with the KOR 3/4" ones

This is what I'd like to add to my 3" IRO when it goes on.

Just hoping it won't greatly affect the ride.

bringing back the dead...

what about not using the factory isolaters (3/4") and just using the BB (2")? would that result in a net gain of 1.25"...or is it necessary for the coils to rest on the isolaters?
