You may want to also use maybe 3/4" long, 3/4" PVC spacer on top of each spring. Make sure to put a washer on both sides of each spacer.

I tell you one thing, the 79 Special exhaust studs are shorter than ones for the 79 Std. They should all be the same pitch thread though. Why don't you go to Ace Hardware and buy the length you need....
