Spacers provide distance between filter discs to ensure proper flow and performance. Universal Filtration spacers are injection molded from 100% virgin, high-impact styrene or ABS to offer the strength and durability your OEM spin system requires. Spacers are available for a variety of hub styles in 1/4" thick increments.
