4" offset ? Sounds like a pull jammer . sounds like plan B to me.

(the cooper website only shows offsets from 1/2 to 2" - not that that means anything)

I can use flex but it will look like crap. Very tight space, should have taken a pic so you could see what I need to do.

I need a 3" offset in 1'. My back boxes are at the shop, I'll get some pics tomorrow if I don't wake up with a 3am brain storm.

I've used them, but I'd need to look for who I bought them from.

What about using a piece of trough?
