Yup.
I also had to make some changes to the numerous aero parts under the car. The front splash guard, and both side pieces had to be altered to fit together. Oh, and I have a pair of extra 11mm spacers...

should I be worried?

comfort is the one you want.
It does what you need it to do, without any additional harshness. I've noticed that the comfort ALK does add some NVH though. I wouldn't want to daily drive the race version.

I disagree, you get some more road feel sure, but it's nothing significant- I drove it daily for a year and a bit and had zero complaints... but yeah if you have your doubts, you might as well play it safe and get the comfort version.

Edit: just realized that Whiteline makes 3 versions, not 2... I had the 'sport' one- the 'race' is excessively harsh and the comfort is soft...

So I guess I would go for the "Sport" version then, "race" is too extreme, plus I will have my coilover re-install for street driving (F9K, R6K)...

Thank you for the input guys...

You know, running coilovers, low pro tires, and camber plates makes for a rougher ride anyway. I'd look into the ALK Paul is selling and run those if they fit.

Whiteline actually offers offset bushings that will work without needing the subframe spacers.

Props to hypa for assembling this MOTD thread, and not calling wheels "rims"

thanks dude.
And thanks to Super Street magazine and the Fast and the Furious franchise for teaching me the proper lingo. I'm going to pick up some mishimoto tires today to go along with my Motec exhaust.

V7's for winter means life is good.



I figured to post these for ****s and giggles.
Jay's 08' with a couple of different kinds of wheels. We were curious as to what fit, and what my wheels would look like. Excuse the dirty car, it had snowed the night before and the car needed to be parked asap. Don't want to drive these tires in ANY amount of snow, trust me.

The car in my backyard.

you need to rephrase that.
18x10 can be made to fit, but it's not easy, nor recommended.
