280zx front suspension and 15x7 +15

Post by Ahut2000 » 17 Aug 2009 17:18

so I tested the rims and they JUST clear the strut tubes. I am running small diameter coilover springs so there is nothing more really to hit... think that 195 50 15 tires will clear on the front with the wheels just clearing the tube :?

one more thing you can do is run a shorter coilover spring on your struts, this will put the spring over the top of your wheel, but requires you to rebuild your coilovers....probably.
