What size tires? I have 235/40/18 and same struts with Epic springs. And 18x7.5 46 offset. I rub on a small part right above the rear bumper where it meets the fender. Its rolled, but it wasn't easy to roll that section.

I'll testify to that section being a pain to roll... I have to re-do mine when it warms up. :/

Sorry forgot to put that in there. They are 225/40. I could be wrong but I think the epic springs may lower a bit more than swift's. (someone will chime in to correct me)

It didn't lower the car as much as I wanted, but it has worked out because my driveway is pretty steep. a couple other shots:

I'm sure a lot of us hear that on a regular basis. I have a nice set of Rays for the summer that really fill out the fenders, so my car looks like a bum when I toss on the stockers with winter tires for the colder months.

Thanks guys.

aepilot - I just noticed you have the mudguards from the base impreza/OBS right? Did they come painted or did you get them painted yourself? Did it require trimming to fit?

I was thinking of going this look as I think rally armors look like truck flaps from the back on wagons.

20mm bolt on wheel spacers work great for stock wheels. im running them with legacy wheels.

I've thought about spacers, but just can't seem to justify it to myself. I really should invest in a decent set of aftermarket wheels for winter since I run them 5 months out of the year though.

Good eye, the guards were on there when I bought it. I do prefer that look over the rally armor as well. They seemed to fit right on.

When you order them they come unpainted. My brother got a set for his 04 wagon and had them painted. He left the front black since road debris would chew the paint up anyways but painted the back side.

If you came from the GF chassis, you had to be luck to get these rails from a USDM '96 wagon or buy ones from Japan or the UK. I installed those on my 93 wagon.
