How I brought my 245 ride height to normal 200 1985

I recently purchased a nice '85 245. The tail always seemed to me to be down as opposed to the nose. I installed new TAB & rear shocks. Still down a little. So what I did was buy two standard vulcanized rubber hockey pucks, shaved the down a 0.25 inch for a total height of 0.75 inches, drilled a hole the correct dia for the bolt that attaches the rubber support of the spring to the top, and installed it. Now it's perfectly level and has no drop even when loaded in the rear. Rides normal. Total cost, $4 + one skinned knuckle, but that's a given.

Hope this can help someone.
