This tip came from Ken (006), thanks for the writeup! http://www.svtperformance.com/forums/showthread.php?t=386791 1-1.5 inch hose ($1-2), or free if you have some laying around. Slice the hose down the side...and slip it over the cable. Completed product. Using this hose makes it a softer cushion for the cable-stop and reduces risk of beaking off the end of the cable as with other kinds of harsh spacer-mods.
