Good luck with the 18x9.5's. I tried to test fit some Advans in that size with no lucky. Rubbed waaay too much. That's with fenders completely rolled, camber plated coilovers (the same BCR's), Whiteline camber bolts. If you do a mild pull I think it can happen. The sedans just don't have the same acceptance with that wide of wheels/tires the hatches do.

Gotta pay to play right?

I know the 9.5" are going to be a pain to squeeze, but hopefully everything will work out. thenewcraze, these should sink in a few millimeters from your G-Forces. I'm not as worried about fender clearance as I am with strut clearance. Wish me luck, I'll post some pics if all goes well.

That was my first choice, but they would definitely stick out further than G-Forces. I'll attempt my 9.5" +44 DPT's first, if all goes well and there is still room to play with (highly doubtful) I'll get some grids too.

I love how low it is. But I think that takes away from overall handling being an AWD. Aren't you suppose to have more travel in the front? Anyways, I love the way 17s look slammed like that. Soooo sweeet. OMFG!

Thanks. Yes, being this low isn't the best for hauling arse through turns. But I don't race around on the streets. But when I'm ready to hit the track, I can raise it up a little and get the alignment dialed in, thats the beauty of coilovers. Then I can go back to street sexiness

You're only boosting 13psi? I am actually surprised you were to be an evo with those mods! Well of course, it's driver too

i love how people are shocked your sedan is "that low" ... low cars can ride pretty nice too... try KW coils... your car can be 1" off the ground and its a smoooth ride... actually can take turns at very very fast speeds as well, people are just too use to forum talk...need to go actually experience it

a few new shots with the track wheels on, the car washed for once, Narva Gold 2500k fogs (halogen), and 5000k DDM Apexcone HIDs (PNP, not a retro...maybe someday)

vs. stock

I don't understand the super slammed bit. A little lower looks good, too low and it starts looking like Uncle Ben's...and it decreases the performance.

I have COs, rear sway, roll center kit and bumpsteer kit (on different car) too but you start to loose your gains after 1 inch or so....and it just looks odd.

Agree. I'd like to go lower for looks (in theory), but for autocross, near-stock is the best. But most people don't care about bump steer or control arm angles or spring travel.
