Some pics, rear adjustment

So after lowering my rear with my 17x8 rims with 25mm spacers i was getting alot of rubbing. I tried trimming away, tried rolling the fenders a bit, and also tried running my rear shocks full stiff. So instead of machining down the spacers a tad i figured i would get spring spacers seeing as the rear is was lower anyways

BEFORE


AFTER



I like the before better but i dont wanna mess with the spacers until i can get the front lower to match

Did you have issues with tire rub before? I like low ride but for me it's too hard on the butt!!! To me super low makes the car look like you are carying a heavy load in the back... That's one of the the things I am looking to correct on my SPG!

Looks great what are you using for spring spacers? Did you get the SAS ones?

Ya it was rubbing pretty good on big bumps. i don't mind the rough ride much and i have extra room on the inside where i could have machined down the spacer so it wasn't rubbing, but i do agree with you it makes the back look way lower. That's why i wanna make coilovers for the front to level it out. But that's a whole different project
