Spring pads

Don't have the numbers in front of me but they are the same for a 201 chassis. I've cut pieces of nylon conveyor belting in order to fine tune the heights on my 190/5.6 and was using scales to get the balance correct. Remember where the pad goes, half way from the pivot point to the upright, which means the thickness increased raises the car twice that amount. So if you replace an 8mm. pad with a 18mm. pad, the car will be 20mm. higher roughly.

Maybe the dealer can find the pads under the 190 parts catalog on his CD, if not, do a search as it has been on here before.
