IMCA'S rules state......SPRINGS: One steel spring per wheel only in OEM location. All coil springs must be minimum 4.5 inches O.D. and non-progressive.

Someone please help me interpret this rule. I read alot about spacers and afco's and stuff like that. Can I use spacers? If so, do they have to be fixed and non-adjustable? Thank you.

Luke.

Our general rule is that both springs when out of the car and side by side must be the same hieght with same number of coils but these are not IMCA Hobby rules. I thought I read somewhere in the Hobby rules that it says no spacers, chains, etc. but I could be wrong.
