Default Need help!

So I just had my wheels and tires put on today and they rubbed all the way home. Tried to raise the rear coilevers some buy they're already as high as they could go. I'm getting fender work done this weekend but my camber in the rear isn't the same on each side either. So my point, does anyone know where to buy rear camber plates that actually fit Apexi N1 coilovers? Can't find any unless I go on their site and pay $425 for them..

Are you sure camber plates will solve the issue? Where's it rubbing? Perhaps go to the GT Worx website and peruse their offerings and call them for help.

It's rubbing right where the enders need to be rolled. I need to make some spacers or something for the rear to lift it up about 1/2" or so. But I need those plates/pillowball mounts to make an even amount of camber in the rear.

dude those wheels don't fit. even if you raised the car.

You need heavy fender modification (roll and pull) and some aggressive camber.

Usually these types of modifications aren't done by a shop, they are done in a garage or driveway because of the extremely custom nature of the modification needed to fit any specific wheel/tire setup.

I know how to make them fit. My question was about the pillowball mounts. I can always use spacers and fender flares to make them fit.

It really doesn't sound like that. Your going to need a decent pull to get those to fit. I hope you're taking it to a good shop.

Google. Those are not a popular coilover, but if you can determine the sprint diameter and the diameter of the rod its possible a top hat from another coilover will fit. Chances are that they won't.

You would need one hell of a spacer to get those to fill out a flare. That would be another bad decision.

Like he said - To correct your problem, you need major fender work. You need to find a competent shop to rebuild your fenders with new flares. How thick is your wallet?


Your wheels are too big and/or have the wrong offset, which is why they stick out so much.

Money isn't a problem. Just need to do more research you know? I'll figure something out. The perks of being a welder and having a machinist in the family haha.

There is a thread somewhere, I think under Tire and Wheel, from a few years back that talks about someone trying to get a Group Buy going to have custom fender flares made by some big name fabricator to address your issue.

Not much to go on but it might be worth a look. Had lots of pictures. There was at least one car that had it done so it will give you an idea or two

Not sure what this has to do with anything, or how it will solve ANY of your problems.
