Those spacers will work for a short time, but they may cause the spring to
break. Imagine taking a fishing rod and holding it at the grip and the tip.
Bend it, and you can flex it almost all the way and it won't break. Now, take
the same rod, grasp it in the middle with both hands and try to get the same
amount of bend. It will break because there is a fulcrum now. The same
applies to springs.
Try a good spring shop.
