And spring rates, camber, and struts, as well as the few parking lots that could be approached.

It does look good though. I would personally be too stressed out to drive any where.

I had broadway static suspension, which are made by fortune auto.

17k/20k spring rates, it was incredibly smooth.

Camber was -3.3 f and -2.9 r

It wasn't as bad as everyone thinks!

Front fenders were stock, the rears were shaved down, rather than rolled because I hate the look of rolled fenders.

Well, not that agressive, but enough for me




After the two pictures above I have changed the front tires from 235 to 225/35-19 and adjusted a little on the front camber.

Best pic so far (love this one):


So the current spec is:
Front: 225/35-19 on 8.5" ET34
Rear: 265/30-19 on 10" ET41

😵😵

This is my aggressive fitment.
18x10.5
18x11.5

Still work on the fitment to make it right. But this is how it sits until I fix some issues I ran into such as camber problems. :/ any body have any suggestions on what I can do to run a lot of camber ?

Yes I do. I added a lot of camber that my axle pop out. So either I have to extend my axle. I'm still trying to figure it out on what I can do.

And get wheels that fit. You might have to change the lips for something less agressive

Yeah it's what I like. I like the fitment and I like the fitment. I can deal with doing a lot camber that's why I got the wheels those specs.
I knew what I was going getting into. And I'm not rubbing any where.

I'm running -5 in the front looking to get around -8 .

I the rears right now I'm running -10 but trying to get -14 to sit on lip. That's what I was running before my axle popped out.

Yes it's a big issue but I found a solution already and I can run up close to -20 camber in the rear but that's just to much for me lol

Yes it's possible with some suspension modifications and some custom brackets. And to be honest with you it drives just fine. Haven't had an issue with it. 👍
