I just put them on my car to finish off my look.

Are you sure they are all the way down? Mine arent all the way down (close to it) and my car looks like it sits a little lower than yours. What are your camber settings btw? Wondering how much camber its taking to clear that 9.5" up front. Looks great BTW!

Edit: Just saw you are running around -2.5 degrees up front. Looks great!

Am I sure? I don't remember installing my suspension with my eyes closed, so yes I'm sure.

But thanks.

Rated M, are you running any spacers? If not, have you had any rubbing issues? I only ask because I see that Apex recommends spacers for that size setup in the front. Thanks.

No spacers up front, but other coilovers might need them. I have rubbing from being so low and from the track, but under normal driving and at a normal height, you'll be fine (assuming you also have camber up front).

Rated M i really like the wheels you have on your car. Maybe you can help me with a few questions. I have kw v3's installed on my car at close to the highest ride height possible. Would you know if i would get rubbing with the higher ride height? You mentioned that you don't have camber plates so i'm assuming I too wouldn't need these.
Would i be able to get the same concave look with a thinner rim?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

thanks
