My previous setup:
Eibachs on stock shocks pictured here. Notice the wheel gap.


My new setup:
Flex coilovers pictured here.





The issue. When I went in and out of my driveway before on the eibachs, I don't remember ever rubbing my fender. I'm definately rubbing now. I understand that I'm slightly lower than I was before. However, if you look at the pic of the rear wheel, it looks like the wheel is sitting under my rear speaker! Why da fuckt is my wheel tucked so much. It never did that with the eibachs.

Is it an issue with travel or spring rate...I fingered that with coils, I would be able to drop a little more with a stiffer ride and more dampening, but I didn't expect my wheel to tuck in like this. It's kinda cool.

Thats cool. I just installed the Flex on my car and dumped it the same way you did here. I just wanted to see what would happen if I hit a speed bump going 30 withi it lowered like this.

I'll post results lata.

:crazy:

That last picture is crazy. I think the first coilover shot looks about right though.
All the coilovers are the same height. When I was goin up my driveway it dropped like a mofo. That's my problem. It never did that with my eibach springs.

:eek: DAYUM

Did you adjust the height out of the box? We adjusted a little when we installed mine. We measured each side to make sure they were identical with each other and made adjustments once on. I think I dropped about 2"s or so...

hey Sophie, How big are your rims? and the offset?
Was in the market for the Model 6's. But your thing here with rubbing going on, was wondering what your wheel size were. Im trying to figure out the perfect size not to rub and fit flush.

The Tuck is hella phat though. :D
