not much documentation on the bottom spring perch pads, in cbh plans. so question is what are you guys doing for spring pads on the springer build. how thick do they need to be? and its two peices outer an inner? like my drawing? and they are held in place by the spring rod? and do i need to put them on top of the bottom springs under the top spring plate as well? this is my first springer build.

im guessing somthing like this how tall to make the outer pad?
