Question Spring spacers?

as crazy as it sounds im looking to do some rallycross with my camaro.
but ive got BMR springs on it now (1.25" drop?)

are there any spring spacers out there that can go on without removing the springs off the struts? ie like a horseshoe shape? some how held in place?
this is a temporary endevor and i dont want to remove the springs to do it.

rears are easy enough,

also does anyone know the outer diameter and height of stock springs?

Well, this is different but I do have an option for you that is easy and temporary. Our SA002 shock spacers will raise the car 1/2", and simply install under the lower shock mount bolts at the control arm. These can also be double stacked to achieve 1" of lift , but will require longer and higher grade hardware

As an alternative if you need more than that, you can find a local circle track racing supply shop and get spring wedges. F-body front springs have a 4-1/2" OD and 3-1/2" ID, so they should have something to fit these needs. they are made to be quickly and easily removeable and installed

Correct, just let the suspension free hang, unbolt the shock and pull the arms down farther. Put the spacer in and bolt back up
