I'm puttin my 22 inch rims back on but heard `about some way of liftin up that strut mount to make sure that the tire does not rub against it. I know of a guy that has 24 inch rims on his car and I heard he used custom struts to make the ride is factory like even with bigger rims.
when i have my 20's on, i use 2 rubber 2'' spacers in the front (in between 1 coil 2 on each side)
and i use 4 of them on each side in the back, (2 inbeteen 2 different coils) now you might flame me, saying that its extreme and i have no spring range but believe me it works great!
on stock 16's having 3 people in the back was murder....rubbing all the time.
my 20's are wider and taller and with 2 pairs of rear spacers on each side it bumps the ride high about 3" and doesnt knock or ride poorly at all, and car have 3 adults in the back seat.
and my car looks raised but definetly not donked.
--- Yea that's wut I have now using the metal coils, I have it raised but it doesn't ride hard or rub on the body of the car. My main concern was the tire rubbin on the lower spring mount & I wuz wondering how to raise the entire mount
I doubt a shop would do it out of safety concerns. It is exactly as it sounds. Remove the knuckle pinch bolt, push up the strut and re-install the pinch bolt.Is there any info on how that is done, i believe that's what I heard someone has done. I'm not sure if a auto shop would do that `or not
