    Hahaha the fender you see in that picture had a couple spots from being jazzed up that were hitting the tire. Other than that all is good. I rub LCAs at full lock but I always did with these tires. The ride is awesome. It has a little bounce to it so in thinking of looking for a stiffer shock but it's nothing that needs immediate attention.

    Better. They just need the right partner I think.

    I rub LCAs on my 255/65/18 Scorpion ATR's at lock, but when I box them I'll also clearance them (cut some metal off). Also have 255/55/18 Scorpion ATRs waiting for these to wear out, which might not rub regardless.

    Wasn't that fender jazzed up before the new Eibachs? I thought I saw that in an earlier photo... or is there something new?

    My Eibachs just showed up (hurray?). I wonder WTF happened with all Eibach's literature saying 1" drop F&R. Maybe that's why they were discontinued. Guess I could BB my lowering springs, but that just seems wrong. Better to get other stiff springs and cut them to the height I want.

    Just to make sure, what are the numbers written on your springs? My box is labeled 2832.540, the front springs are marked 2832002, and 46/98, and rear are 2832001, 11/99. I may have read somewhere there were two versions made... maybe one was for I6 motors, and I'm wondering if that's what we got... your rear sure looks low, but did you measure?

    Didnt measure rear. Front hub to fender is 16.5" According to Tanner at eibach who refused to give McCoud info they are a 1.1" drop. I thought I read about two versions but they could not confirm because no PN for me to go off. Yes the fender was messed up before so thats why it had to get "fixed". These tires are a 265/65/18. My 255/55/18s had no rub on the springs I sent to McCloud that he is now running.

    M-1!!!! Is there a reason WHY someone wouldn't want to elaborate on that? I missed something along the way. You've been busy the last couple years I see! I'm trying to catch up between all the hair pulling my girls like to do. The niner looks great. Like the look with the door trims removed. Rims are a sweet addition as well, and I know I showed up late. My fault.

    Ghey!
    Resident speeding ticket whore

    If I offend anyone tonight, I apologize. That's not my intention. I'm not going to guess what your personal line of decency is. I cross my own from time to time. It's how I know I still have one.
