yet another victim of an "aggressive" fitment. you can't these kind of fitments without doing your research. the minimum you need are stiff springs (most coilovers will do) and camber plates/bolts... check out the aggressive fitment thread in the member's gallery section

Logic does not compute.

You had 8.5" rims and you had to cut and roll fenders. Now you have 9" rims and you wonder why you're rubbing?

Am I missing something here?
