    Your car looks great as it is, don't do it. I like the stock look.

    I know this is an old thread but, was wondering if you have trouble with your front tires rubbing on bumps. Mine is at least ½" higher than yours and on small bumps. I have 2" lowering springs and new monroe shocks. Maybe better stiffer shocks?

    Be aware of your alignment as camber can tilt the top of the tire in during compression and keep it from rubbing on the fender liner bolts provided the back spacing of the wheel and tire size is okay.

    That could be part of the problem since I did just replace the upper control arm shaft with a correction shaft because I had a huge camber issue on one side. It rubbed before though with way too much camber. I think my monroe shocks are just garbage and let the suspension
    compress too quickly.
