Re: (silver saloon)

mmkay so i just looked and ive got about 3/8 of an inch between the tire and fender liner. im assuming my bags arent low enough on the shock right? i also dont hear anything hit went i deflate the fronts...
my plan is to spin the perches down a little more, maybe an inch or so. i'll have to see. do i need both perches? or will the weight of the car be enough to make sure the perch wont go down further
im also gonna cut the strut bushings a bunch. hopefully that'll get me a lot lower

Re: (silver saloon)

how much room do you have between the bottom of the bag and the tire on those steelies?
I wouldn't touch the bushings until you have spun the bag down as far as you feel comfortable with.

Werd. Do you have spacers you could use up front by any chance? Even better to space the steelies out to move away from the whole strut assembly and bag...

Re: (silver saloon)

did you notch your frame too

Get that thing over sometime so I can see why you are soo high in the front still.
You shouldn't have to take off your front end to see how close the bag is to the tire
