Me and my friends have made metal spacer before. I don't see why you couldn't use a hockey puck, but it doesn't seem practical because you can't control the height, its already preset. Dunno

DO NOT USE HOCKEY PUCKS!!

that vulcanized rubber cannot handle the load and they will split and fall out causing loss of control and possibly killing someone.

I am With Stupid You will spend almost as much on hockey pucks as you would to just buy a damn body lift. IF you cant even afford a body lift maybe you should find a new hobby. Rolling Eyes
