The ride is a bit stiffer than stock from my Rspec; I would do it again. I didn't want to go for the sportlines since I didn't want to restrict the strut travel more than I have to. The prokit gave it a nice drop.
And no I haven't taken any pics on how it looks now.
I have added a few new things, after my spacers, Ima have a shoot.
It's on either side of the car let's use the drivers side as an exams. As soon as you look inside the rear wheel well towards the rear of the car it will be where the rear quarter and your bumper meet closest to the outside of the car. Sand that tab down as much as possible. If problem is your fender itself then camber is your friend. I'm running -2 all the way around and have normal wear on all my tires.
No issues at all, I check them every oil change and they've never loosened since first installed, installed at 75lbs with a torque wrench.
Two methods for doing the front spacers, have a friend sit in the car and hold down on the brakes, or use a 2x4 about two feet long to hold the wheel from spinning by standing it upright between the ground and one of the lugs, since the wood is soft it won't damage the threads on the lug.
My gen has a 67.1 hub size and I bought wheels that have a 73.1 bore. They came with hub rings, but my front wheels are rubbing against the brembos. I need two 5 mm spacers but I need spacers that have hub rings attached to them, I'm not sure if these even exist.
How would I go about solving this? I've been researching for hours and I don't know exactly what to buy.
Anyone ever use Squirrelly Performance spacers? I don't want to go buying bad spacers because I've never even heard of the brand.
And also how about RMX? Uniq Performance sells them on their site for $120, where the Eibach ones are $200? If there's nothing wrong with the cheaper alternatives I don't see why not, I just don't want to waste my money on cheaply made parts.
I got a 14 gen, for some reason the back wheels are a little more "out" than the front due to a slightly bigger hub. I have 20mm in the back and 25mm in the front (ichiba V2) I'm not currently lowered but plan to get some PBM coilovers soon (can't stand the wheel gap still)!
Hello. New to the forum. I hope someone can help. I have a 2013 R Spec, I would like to put on the Eibach springs with Bilsteins. From what I have read so far it looks like the B8 shocks and struts are the better option. However I can't find anyone that has done this mod without spacers. I have two other cars with same set up and have not had to use spacers. Is it possible to just use the eibachs and bilsteins with stock 19 inch wheels without the spacers?
Thanks for any help.
Hey guys I have a 2011 r spec running rpf1s 18x9.5 +15 square setup in the front they are coming out past the fender-it looks like the inside of the fender is rolled already but when going around a corner I assume the fender will hit the top of the tire, does anyone have any experience with this...
My e-brake light randomly turned on while I was driving, I don't usually rip it unless its winter and even then I only pull up as much as I need to, to get the wheels to lock up.
I turned the car off and on and it went away for a couple minutes, then I came back on and is now staying like that...
This is where we need to compile all of the information needed to upgrade your cars factory wheels and tires. Pictures of setups with tire size i.e ( 255/40/R18 ) and wheel dimensions i.e. ( 18x9.5 +15 ) etc. This will eliminate the question of "Will These Fit?!" by giving users a way to...
