it can be done with the regular spring tool, but the HL tool would be better, easier and safer. I would not go over 1" on the spacers. Alum. would work the best, PVC is another option and works well for spacer material.
thanks i thought i saw on another post to use schedule 80 will 40 be ok
If you use sch 40 or 80, use a coupling with a piece of pipe glued inside it and this will double the thickness giving you a wider surface for the spring to sit on. after glue has set, cut to desired lenght. either one will work fine.
post some pics when your are done. please.
