2008 rear spoiler spacers

Does anybody know if they sell spacers for the rear wing? I don't want to replace it with an aftermarket one, as I like the one that's on the car, I just want raise it up. I'm thinking maybe half an inch to an inch higher off the trunk.

If not, I guess I can fabricate some up, but I'd rather pay someone else and be lazy about it

i haven't seen anything that will match the body lines of the spoiler. if you want it to look natural then you will prolly need to fab something up.;

I'm just wondering how I could fab it out of metal and not scratch the living hell out of the paint on the trunk...

get some sort of rubber washers to put under the metal to protect it.

couldn't you just put those washers between the spoiler and the trunk? if it's anything like my buddies WRX we just took the wing off of, there are 4 screws holding it on that you would have to put washers on to space it, then use body filler and make it permanent, or there'd be a gap. there isn't a perfectly shaped spacer to fill in the gap created

There was a member here, whose name escapes me atm, who fabbed up some sort of rods to "lift" the spoiler off the trunk a few inches. Didnt seem too difficult, just one of those things that could look kinda messed up in not done perfectly.
