Autozone sells the small pieces of metal tubing that are the perfect diameter for about $2 each.

I had my last set done with stainless tubbing...looked better than aluminzed exhaust pipe.

All_motor_mike made them up for me. About $60 to do all 4 and I just supplied the stock tophats.

Just did this. Now my upper control arms are on the body already but it rides way better. Only problem is I switched from 55 tires to 50 in front on a fat drop. My EF bumper with barley any lip is like 1¼ off the ground and I can't slide my key under my header

Deadbird can't make them?

I could if you wanted to drop them off at my work tonight and would have to find the right size tubing tomorrow and pick them up from my work Sunday( I live in surprise and work in Glendale which is probably closer for you). Also wouldn't be tig'ed like the ones all_motor_mike did for me in the pics above though.

Will this also eliminate having to cut your rubber bump stop when you lower your car ?
