Failure? you show me your car, maybe we do not talk about.
yes your car is a failure.

lets take a look:

staggered setup
generally not a good idea for AWD as different amounts of tire stretch can affect overall tire diameter, will increase wear on the center differential. im not saying that your diff will implode, but i could see it potentially causing issues.

car is WAY too low
will not handle as well as a car with proper suspension travel and proper suspension geometry. you bought coilovers to slam your car. good job

improper tire size for wheel width
running a 205 width tire on a 8.5-9" wide wheel is just stupid. it looks stupid. it does not give you more performance, it reduces it.

not sure why im trying to tell you these things though, you're probably one of the ILDS idiots who cruise parking lots at 5mph and then claim they never have any problems. gee i wonder why LOL.

there are pics of my car earlier in this thread. feel free to scroll back and see what a proper wheel/tire/suspension setup looks like.


17x9" ET44 Work Emotion CR-Kai
245/40/17 Continental ExtremeContact DW
RCE Black Springs (275/250 lb/in) lowers 0.75" (19mm)
Koni Sport (yellow) dampers
Whiteline 22mm rear swaybar

Winter: (i didnt post this because it didnt fit this thread's aim)

15x7" (ET unknown, guessing 45) Team Dynamics Pro Rally 1
215/65/15 General Altimax Arctic
King Lift Springs (~280/250 lb/in) LIFTED 1.5" (38mm)
Koni Sport (yellow) dampers
Whiteline 22mm rear swaybar

my car in "winter mode" will outperform your car LOL

I have since sold the RCE Black springs. will be using Feal 441 Coilovers for future summer seasons.
