Fork preload spacer

Hey guys my spacers in my forks seam to have been cut shorter. What is the stock length of the spacer? And what is a suitable material to make new ones the proper length?

Most of us use ABS pipe. White is nice because of the contrast against the black springs. ;-)

It's cheap and easy to cut.

I ended up putting a 5 1/2" spacer in. I wasn't a hundred percent sure on the length but there in and the forks feel good. New fork oil and seals, can't wait to try them out.
