89-300ce Spring Pads

The front of my car 89-300ce sits about 1" lower than I would like. When I was doing a ball joint on my car I looked at the upper spring mount but couldn't see any pads. Of course I don't know what they look like to begin with. Could someone describe them to me and where I would look for the nubs to indicate thickness?

Jorg, they are a black rubber cap that sits atop the spring and fits into the spring cup of the car's frame/chassis. The nubs are visable at the lower end of the pad (spring side). The nub(s) are repeated three times around the pad so that they will be visable irregardless of how the pad is rotated when installed. Should you need pads or wish to change what is already there, they are sold by the dealer rather cheaply (around US$3-4/ea). I will also shamelessly plug those I have for sale (see E-bay item 7924010193). They are left over from a lowering spring install and were part of the final tweaking to get the height where I wanted it. The fronts I have are the thicker ones which may work for you to raise your car slightly. Good luck!
