I actually use Golf Ball Tees. They work great. You have to make sure the tees are the same length (There is no quality control on these things they are just made by the thousands and the height differs)
Also, you may want to glue them on a small wooden base so they are sturdy and don't fall over.
I work at a golf & Country Club, so I have balancing tools for days!!!

Doe's it matter if I know who I am talking to or not? Why would you put something that heavy and stiff on the front bumper were it would transfer all that load to the chassis in a crash can we say tweek?

my patawan learner...you must learn the way of the force... j/k
actually it is not heavy. the car is way underweight anyways...
the stock bumper post can be easily strip if you tighten it down too much...
the body post... hmm..a little bling bling doesn't hurt. and it's on Hara's car..so if it's good enough for him... it's good enough for me. I agree with you though...stiff front end would transfer the load to the chassis in a crash...but I haven't had any serious crashes and suffered any tweek problems. the only part I've broken so far are the front arms and that was a result of the walls getting in my way. and didn't have the wide bumper mod installed yet.
