I am changing from the bench seat to buckets in the XT, and I have found that I need spacers under all four legs of each seat dose anyone know the height of the smaller spacers so I can make them?

This is the larger one but there are three smaller ones for the other legs.

I was lead to believe that I needed three of the smaller ones, two for front, one for outer rear and the 45mm one for the inner rear?

Sounds about right but three little ones is the same as one big one or thereabouts, I never saw a big one like those till a few years ago! might be later model ones that do the same job.

Ok
I made three 12mm spacers. Two for front bolts, one for outer rear and the 45mm one for the inner rear
they worked great.

And a thanks goes out to Fairlane6970
