Am I going to be rubbing with 15 in stock wheels (can't recall exact tire size) and a Weitec 60/60 kit (with JOM 10mm spring caps up front)? Should I just leave off the JOM 10mm spring caps? Just trying to get some info before I install. Thanks.

naw put the caps in..... and if you've got 205-50-15, you might have some rub probs... but minor, if any.

alright I finally checked my tire size and they are 215-50-15. Does this mean I'm going to rub?

I still have about a finger in the front on my 60/60 with 15" stockies...so I think with 10 you'll be sitting at a nice height with no rubbing problems http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

they are caps put on top of the springs or something like that that give it that extra drop that your springs won't provide...they have a choice of 5mm, 10mm, and 15mm i think. I'm basically sure they don't offer any more than that.

Re: (GTi Punk)

yeah it turns out I don't have any rubbing problems but I didn't put the caps on, they didn't seem to sit right on the springs. I also didn't drop the rear down all the way. I have it on the second to last setting. Thanks for the help.
