Okay, got the new spacers installed, added a few pictures, it adds an inch to the clearance between steering arm and chains. Now I've got 9 inches of snow to clean up, getting that west michigan lake effect!
Was looking at your pictures. In particular, the one with the bungies. The end clips do not need to go in the very last link of chain. It looks like you could get it tighter by a link or two, or no? Whoa, wait a minute, took a second look and see that it looks like somebody squeezed the connecting link in on that side. That's got to be undone so that you don't have to take the wheels off everytime the chains need to go on/off.
Next... Tire chains for the Corvette.
