Has anybody had this problem? I thought that my set up would work fine. I got the LE37T's 18x 7.5 all around with a 40 offset. My tires are so3's 225x40. I think that i know what the problem is though. I am lowered with JIC Magic A2's. I think that my problem is that my settings are a little loose. I did this because i wanted a smoother ride. Tomorrow i will be doing some work on it. If anybody has any comments, that would be great.

On a different note the rims look so damn sweet!! :D :D I will try to post some pics very soon. If anyone is thinking of getting these rims, man you won't be disappointed. Oh yeah who is watching the victoria secrets show. :p

i had the same problem
1. Go to Sports Authority, Champs, ETC...
2. Buy a small WOODEN Luisville Slugger
3. Lift your car
4. Take bat to fender, rub all the insides up. Sit in a chair, and rub the bat back and worth on the part that the tire is hitting. Put some elbow grease on it. SHouldnt take too long. Good luck.
peace

5spd-lexus:

I have the JIC coilovers also and I need to raise it up because my bodykit is being installed on Monday. I also want to soften the ride up a bit. What are the general directions to raising/lowering this coilovers and softening the ride a little. Anyone? Thanks.

on the jic's i would raise it up by using the top perch, the bottom perch will adjust the shock travel, as for ride comfort, just use that allen key that came with the coilovers and adjust it to your preference
